EN - Yulin, a Chinese farmer’s wife, leads a tough life - poor, childless and constantly abused by her husband. Her only escape is making mud dolls and fantasising about a better life. In a violent clash, she kills her husband and buries him outside the house. On the following night, one of her dolls comes alive and becomes the link between her past and her future.
