Program Abstract: "The tale of a fisherman's family living on the coast of the East China Sea, left helpless by the death of the father in a storm. It is an early example of location filming used in order to heighten the realism of the story. Director Cai Chusheng struggled to incorporate synchronous sound into the film, employing a new Chinese-developed sound technology produced by The Three Friends System."
