Filmmaker Deng Wei’s grandfather ZuoGui has been blind since the age of three, living most of his life as a fortune teller and raising many children. Now approaching the final chapter of his life, ZuoGui lives a life of bitter discontent toward his son (and Wei’s father) DongGu, a businessman who is set on earning the respect not afforded him as a child. DongGu works as a property developer to provide his family with a good life, but when a job-site accident forces him into financial hardship, it prompts a re-examination of his priorities and values—one that may lead the father and son to finally form a bond of respect, perhaps even love.
