Film synopsis:

The Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link and Hong Kong-Shenzhen Western Corridor connect people’s lives and work within the Pearl River Delta region. Against this backdrop, three women from the same family, each representing their own generation, tell three different stories: in the 1960s, the grandmother moved to the south for her family; in the 1980s, the mother chose to live in Hong Kong for her children’s future; in the present day, the young daughter who works as an architect must go back and forth between the mainland and Hong Kong for both work and love. Moving south or going north, the choices made by these three women tell a story of their time. With new roads and rails linking more and more places, how will it affect the lives of these three generations?
