Synopsis

Barely able to survive on their meagre corn harvest, a young farmer and his father leave the mountains of Shan State to seek financial help from relatives working in jade mines and on opium plantations. Unable to borrow money, the father pawns his cow to buy a moped so that his son can earn a living as a taxi driver. His first customer is Sanmei, who has returned to Myanmar to bury her grandfather. Unwilling to return to an arranged marriage in China, Sanmei accepts a job as a drug runner and persuades the young farmer to be her driver.
