In an elderly home, in order to relieve boredom, the optimistic Lao Zhou (played by Wu Tianming) designs a group game and invites all the tenants to play. The homeless Lao Ge (played by Xu Huanshan) arrives just in time to join. The old folks have great fun with the game and actively participate in rehearsal, preparing for a competition in Tianjin. However, their families raise objection. They then escape from the elderly home and drive towards their dream stage. When Lao Zhou burns out his last passion, the elders pay tribute to him with a dance of life.
