The filming place is in Shanghai, and the content of the film mainly focuses on lonely older people in society. As a big city in China, Shanghai is undergoing tremendous changes every day. These changes seem to have improved people’s quality of life and attracted people from all over the world to live on this land. But in these reinforced concrete forests, the relationship between people has also undergone subtle changes. Part of the elderly in society is gradually creating a gap with the rest of the community.

The day before moving to the nursing home, the reunion with two old friends made her taste the joys and sorrows of the world. She couldn’t help asking whether she understood the meaning of life and what kind of life she would have in the future.
