One night he witnesses a murder, to preserve their own safety the thieves throw an injured mate into a ravine. The young man awakes one morning to find them gone and everything that happened seems no more than a dream. He is haunted by horror at the killing and a confusion of complicated emotions. This collection of stories depicts life in the 1930s in China's southwest, a region populated by many minority groups where life was full of love, hate, mystery, romance and adventure.
