Summary, etc.:
Based on the best-selling novel set during China's cultural revolution, this acclaimed film is about two young men, university students, who are sent to a remote mountain village for a Maoist re-education, to purge them of their decadent Western education. Amid the back-breaking work and stifling ignorance of the community, the local beauties are the only respite from their miserable life. But none compare to the granddaughter of the regiońs tailor. With a secret cache of forbidden books, they set about to woo her.
