The film tells a real story of disappearances in order to pay tribute to a famous poem of the Yuan Dynasty, written by Ma Zhiyuan:
Over old trees wreathed with rotten vines fly evening crows;
Under a small bridge near a cottage a stream flows;
On ancient road in the west wind a lean horse goes.
Westward declines the sun; far, far from home is the heartbroken one.
