Dahai (Jiang Wu), a miner exasperated with the corruption of his village leaders, decides to take matters in his own hands. San'er (Lanshan Luo), a migrant worker, discovers the infinite possibilities his weapon offers. Xiaoyu (Meng Li), front desk clerk in a sauna, can’t stand a wealthy client’s harassing anymore. Xiaohui (Baoqiang Wang) goes from one job to the next, each on more and more degrading conditions. Four characters, four provinces, a reflection upon nowadays China: a society with a colossal economic growth slowly eroded by violence. A violence that leads to desperate decisions that irrevocably affect their lives and those surrounding them.
