During the Chinese Cultural Revolution, bourgeois city boys Luo and Ma, who belong to reactionary families, are sent to the Phoenix Mountains to be re-educated. There, the youngsters quickly find a distraction in the Little Seamstress, the granddaughter of the local tailor who, like them, hankers for knowledge. When the boys discover a cache of books by the likes of Flaubert and Balzac, they risk everything to read the forbidden texts to the Little Seamstress and free her imagination.
