Genhe is a city in Inner Mongolia which is one of the coldest regions of China where the temperature stays deep below the freezing point for most of the year. There, a group of teenagers from dysfunctional families practice running. Every day in light or darkness, they fight against wind, snow and pain under the leadership of an uncompromising trainer. This inspiring documentary shows their youthful determination driven by their hope of leaving their poor region on an athletic scholarship.
