Synopsis

Teenage best friends, Luo and Ma, sons of 'reactionary intellectuals' are sent to a far-flung outpost for Maoist re-education during China's Cultural Revolution in the 1970s. To keep their spirits up after their arduous work in the fields, they play Ma's violin - which they save from destruction by re-inventing Mozart lieder as songs of the revolution.
