During the height of China's Cultural Revolution, the sons of two alleged reactionaries are sent to a remote village to be 're-educated' by hard work and peasant living.

While there, the two characters meet the daughter of the local tailor and discover a collection of various forbidden Western novels hidden by another city boy also sent to the country for re-education. As they flirt with the seamstress and secretly devour these banned books, the two men find an escape from their grim surroundings to times and places they never imagined.
