Chongren He was born in 1936, in Li Jiang, a small town on the Tibetan border. He is a descendant of the Naxi, one of the fifty-six Chinese minorities with a population of 300,000. What makes the Naxi people unique is their ancient Dongba culture preserved in millennia-old pictographs. Their pictograph is the only one still in use in the world today and is called the “living fossil”.

Under the constant pressures of politics and assimilation by the dominant Chinese culture, he now lives in a small village like on an isolated island surrounded by endless waves of tourists. The film seeks to understand how an 82-year-old man managed to build his own spiritual castle in order to protect himself and his fragile but precious culture.
