To the south of China, hidden away amongst spectacular mountain peaks, villages deserted by the younger generations still survive cut off from the modern world as no roadway allows access to them! Rather than investing in an expensive road network, the Chinese government has chosen to oblige the last inhabitants to leave their homes and land. The village of Xiao Jiang is no exception. But one man has decided otherwise. To save his home village, Yuan Feng Huang dreams of building a road, digging through the mountain over more than 5 kilometers. But at the age of 48, Yuan Feng learns that he has cancer, and that his days are numbered. So, he’s decided to build the road now! If he succeeds, Xiao Jiang will be saved and the inhabitants’ lives will be transformed forever...

«For Yao community, the road means not only progress, but also liberty. The arrival of motorized vehicles such as cars, busses or trucks brings dreams of future, travels, access to healthcare and education, the end of drudgery. The road symbolizes a promise: comfort and modernity » Jean-Michel Corillion.
