Life is rough for Erhao: widowed for the third time by an explosion at the fireworks factory she ran with her husband, she only just survives the accident. Semi-comatose and staying with her in-laws, she is raped by her brother-in-law. This sets her off on a quest through rural China that can perhaps also be seen as an escape fantasy.
