With their parents gone to work in Shenzhen, Xiao He and Xiao Yu are left behind in the village to live with their grandpa. While the little sister Xiao Yu boards at school, the elder brother takes a boat to school everyday. As the parents are seldom home and grandpa is too old, the siblings who miss mom and dad come up with a strange idea so as to coax the parents back home. Yet they are scolded and fall out, and the sister even catches a disease. With the care of the people around them, the young siblings stand up to passivism and join a ferryboat race. Sunlight shines again on the fingertips and faces of the brother and sister.
