Synopsis

In this winsome, bittersweet musical drama that explores the tension between tradition and progress, problems are piling up for the Jinli Sichuan Opera Group (played by the troupe’s actual performers). Audience interest is literally dying out, and the demolition of their theater looms. As company leader Zhao desperately searches for a new home for the opera, her singers, including niece and leading starlet Dan Dan, might already be plotting to move on.
