In 1910, France built a railroad that connected its colony of Vietnam and Yunnan. Since then, the anonymous station in Yunnan has endured tumultuous social change, while sharing the weight of time and infinite darkness through the years with the local residents.

Director: Guo Jing
Mt. Kawakarpo is a sacred mountain worshipped by many Tibetans. Fascinated by this place since 1997, the director put aside his scholarly mindset as anthropologist and visited the mountain many times as a pilgrim. He captured on film the daily lives of the local people, the pilgrims and the natural landscape.
