A Chinese village deep in the countryside: home to 10-year-old Zhu Hongbo, whom everyone calls ‘Stonehead’. He is one of many children whose parents have moved to the big cities as migrant workers. With only their grandparents and a few teachers around, they have to find others to look up to – or become role models themselves. As a county model student, Stonehead receives not just a certificate, but also a brand-new football. Yet his joy at receiving this reward soon gives way to disappointment.

Director Zhao Xiang

Born in the northeastern Chinese port city of Dalian in Liaoning province in 1974, he studied acting at the Shanghai Theatre Academy and since then has worked with some of the most significant film directors in China. In 1998 he moved to Beijing and spent a decade working as an assistant with directors such as Wang Xiaoshuai (Beijing Bicycle) and Liu Jie (Judge).
