In 1890s New Zealand, two Chinese gold miners in a remote valley struggle to improve their lot. Chan is restless and unhappy; his father-in-law Kim wants to return to China. The goldfields are in decline; the presence of surveyors working in the area confirms that change is imminent. When they make a lucky strike on their claim it seems their problems are over… But for Chan, his story is just beginning.
