Synopsis and Plot Summary

An elderly Chinese woman whose granddaughter has gone for studies abroad takes the chance to go to Japan to find her adopted daughter, a returned war orphan whom she has lost contact with for many years. A retired police officer and a second-generation orphan steps in to assist in her transnational search for family.

After the victory of the War of Resistance Against Japan in 1945, a large number of Japanese orphans were adopted by families in Northeast China. With the normalization of diplomatic relations between the two countries in the 1970s and 1980s, many orphans returned home including Lihua, the adopted daughter of Chen Huiming (Wu Yanshu). In 2005, Grandma Chen who is nearly 80 years old has not received a return letter from her adopted daughter for a long time so she decides to embark on a long journey to Nara, Japan.
