A journey into the Yunnan mountains, in the footsteps of Meiyun, a young woman from the Hani ethnic group, who has been ordered to hurry up and find a husband.

Like many young people, 25-year-old Meiyun, from the Hani minority ethnic group, has left the mountains where her family live, to settle in Kunming, a thriving city with better job prospects. Meiyun is pretty and resourceful. She buys jewellery on the local markets and sells it online. With the proceeds of these sales, she is able to help her family financially and share a roof over her head. However, she is still single, which poses a problem for a traditional family such as hers. During the Kuzhazha festival, Meiyun pays a visit to her parents to meet some prospective suitors.
