Cai Xingju and her mother Qiao Ying. The old woman has never left her village. Despite her daughter's fear, she advised her to follow her young husband, Ding Zhifa, to Beijing. It is a great opportunity for her to "see the world," she said. But the young woman is worried about this new life. She doesn't want to leave her parents and two days before departure, she fakes an appendicitis. Perhaps the perpective of living with a man she believes to be in love with will finally cure her of her imaginary disease.
