Synopsis and Plot Summary

A story that details the the lives of ordinary civilians amidst the magnanimous changes in Chinese society over the years.

At the end of the 1970s, the Zhou family lived in a provincial city in the north. The father, Zhu Zhigang (Ding Yongdai), has just participated in the Third Front Movement in Xinan. The eldest son, Zhou Bingyi (Xin Boqing), responds to national call to become part of the first batch of "educated" youths sent to live and work in the rural areas. The eldest daughter, Zhou Rong (Song Jia), follows her poet husband to the countryside of Guizhou. The youngest son, Zhou Bingkun (Lei Jiayin), is the only one left at home with their mother.

In the span of 50 years, the Zhou family is swept with the tides of change in China. Zhou Bingyi enters politics after graduating from university and experiences ups and downs in his career during the drastic reforms. Zhou Rong stays on to teach after receiving her Ph.D. She has a difficult love life and ends up living in France for twelve years. Zhou Bingkun and Zheng Juan (Yin Tao), a beautiful yet misfortunate woman, develop romantic feelings for each other and continue to mature through their own efforts.
