Description: This romantic drama, named for the famous Kangding folk song, focuses on the lasting love between Li Sujie, a young Han Chinese engineer, and Dawa, a Tibetan serf. The couple meet in 1950 when Li arrives with the Chinese army during the establishment of the Ganzi prefecture. Obstacles force a 60 year separation, but their love never wavers. Adding a parallel modern relationship, the story reflects social changes over time and celebrates local culture.
The victory of the revolution in 1949 like the spring thunder also awoke the snow mountain that sleeping a long time, and brought an earth-shaking change to that ancient and mysterious land. One day in 1950, a red team reached Ganzi which located in the southwestern Sichuan Province. The people’s liberation army stationed in this place, and started to build railway which would connect Tibetan and the outside world.
Geology technician Li Sujie who just graduated from college came with the army, and filled with enthusiasm to serve the motherland. By chance, the people’s liberation army rescued a drowning aristocrat. Under the proposal of Li Sujie, the aristocrat released two slaves, including one Tibetan girl named DaWa. Li Sujie not only broke the chains that imprisoned her, but also opened her locked mind. In this holy land of blue sky, pure love of revolution quietly bred.
