In the 2008 Sichuan Earthquake, 5,335 students were killed. As China has one-child policy, the earthquake took away the only child of many families. This film is about a mother, Ye Hongmei, and her friends' different fate of having a new baby. Refusing to come to terms with the reality that her 8-year-old daughter was killed, the 40-year-old Hongmei started her second IVF treatment to get pregnant. She believes that giving birth to another girl would mean the return of her gone daughter. She has to endure extraordinary pain such as travelling 50 miles every day just to receive injections and blood tests.
