A story of four brothers, told across four seasons, with each facing crucial changes in their lives at the same time as their ageing mother battles with dementia. Their dilemmas, decisions and destinies parallel the drastic societal change that is happening in their city. This parallelism is shot with acute scrutiny that resembles ancient Chinese paintings.
