Main program

Buddha Mountain / Li Yu

Three friends, Ding Bo, Nan Feng, and Fei Zao have finished school but have gone against parental pressure, refusing to take their university entrance exams. This results in parental disapproval and family strife. Eager to start their own lives, they decide to leave their parents’ homes, and look for work in another city. The friends arrive in Chengdu and rent rooms in the home of the former Peking Opera singer, Chang Yue Qin. As the narrative unfolds, past secrets in Master Chang’s life are uncovered by the three friends, and are a catalyst to unexpected events and personal growth. These events lead to an increased understanding between the four, ultimately offering the possibility of acceptance and movement toward individual destinies.
