From a remote village in the northeast of China, Old Cao, Little Cao, Yu and Zhang make a living by mining granite. Life is dull and hard, work from dawn to dusk. After a short vacation for the Spring Festival, the four return to work only to discover the land has been purchased by real estate developers who will turn the mine into a holiday resort. On the verge of losing their jobs, an agreement is made extending their work contract for another year. But what will happen after that?
