Under the campaign of Land Reform (1947-1953) in China, land owners needed to be eliminated. Yanfei, son of a landlord is survived from capital punishment. While recovering from bullet wounds under the protection of a Longevity symbol on the door beam during the time when his mother gives birth at home, his hiding is leaked. Not only he is shot, but not allowed to be buried for ten days. The newly born baby and a five year-old daughter are left after the mother hanged herself. Someone is secretly bringing them up.
