The film charts the life and trials of You Tianming, a young suona (Chinese double-reed woodwind instrument) apprentice who goes on to form his very own suona troupe at a time when the traditions of suona music are declining in Chinese society. During the following years Tianming witnesses the decline of ancient traditions, but while suona ensembles break up and fellow musicians gradually drift away to seek work in the city as unskilled labourers, Tianming sticks to his calling, keeping faith with his master’s commitment to the art of suona music. When Tianming’s Master passes away, Tianming plays Song of the Phoenix at his graveside, a piece of music played to commemorate only the most venerated members of the community.
