Teenaged Xiao Jing lives in a tucked away town in Hunan Province, isolated by both geography and her deafness. Her only real emotional connection is with her uncle, an artist that she occasionally poses for. That slightly awkward hobby gives rise to a minor scandal involving the uncle, which results in Jing being packed off to the city to live with her resentful father, cop Haoyang. Rounding out the makeshift family is Haoyang's pregnant girlfriend Xiao Mei, an aspiring rock star.
