Martin, a struggling writer in Little Rock, Arkansas, mistakenly receives a letter from a blind teacher in a remote western Chinese village. In the letter, the teacher implores a former student to come home to teach the village children. Miserable in his present life, Martin journeys to the remote area which in the mid-1990s is not open to foreigners. Initially threatening to arrest him, the county authorities finally agree to send him to replace the old blind teacher, the only teacher in a primary school.

But will Martin survive a difficult life lacking of water and no toilets, with buildings near collapse, three grade-levels of mischievous students and a noisy local opera broadcast over loudspeakers every day? Will the villagers accept this alien-like but passionate and impetuous American teacher? Watch the trailer below and enjoy the moving and inspiring pre-view of this culture-clashing movie.
