Every year during August and September, several thousand agricultural workers leave their native Sichuan province by train for a trip of more than 3,000 km, lasting three days and two nights, towards Chinas far west, to the Xinjiang province where endless cotton fields are awaiting the harvest. For most of the workers its the first time away from their villages, as well as their first time on a train. A documentary which, probably for the first time ever, shows Chinese peasants from poor regions speaking openly about their lives.
