Director: Xu Tong
Li Baicheng lived half of his life alone. When he was more than 40 years old, he encountered his deaf and mute wife Pearl (Shi Zhenzhu)and rescued her from an abusive family. They began living together in some northern urban fringe area, where Li earned his living by being a fortune-teller. Most of his clients were prostitutes who had their unique stories. As the police crack down on prostitution and illegal activities, the old couple were forced to come back to hometown in the freezing winter. There, they visited her family and went back to Li’s home. When the spring came, they were on the way to temple fair, waiting for striking the luck.
