To bring their characters to life, 13 actors agreed to voluntarily live in an isolated arsenal of Sichuan Province, relinquishing any contact from the outside world to experience the way of life from the Cultural Revolution in an experience tantamount to a social experiment. They wore costumes from the period and listened to the music of that time. When one of the actors requests a leave of absence, surprising and frightening changes come over the other actors, and an unexpected struggle ensues.
