The story talks about a junior high graduate named Paigu. He is from Jiangxi, making a living by selling pirated DVDS in city. It is rather cynical that he has rich knowledge on those masterpieces he sells. However, he has never seen one, because he does not understand those "artistic films" at all. He loves the popular drama, and dreams of true romance in his life, although he talks to himself to repel the vision. For those coming from villages without any education background like him, he believes it is impossible.
