Spring of 2000, in Baoji county of China, a group of vagrants gathered on a trash platform near the railway station, celebrating the New Year. This group of people is mostly in the same age group. They came from everywhere of the country. During the day, they would venture into the city aimlessly. At night, they would sleep along the rails of the station. They would pick up trash and bottles around the railway for a few RMB in order to survive through the hunger in them.
Among them, there is Zhou Fu, who had lost his money and identity card on his way home after working in the city. There are two, LI Xiao Long and Huo Hong Chang, who had ran way from a detention house. And little Yunnan, who was dumped by his boss after working for 3 years with the latter. Feng Xiang had run away from home after an argument with his family about getting married.
6 months later, most of them were nowhere to be found. It was heard that someone saw Zhou Fu dancing on the streets naked. What drove him to the edge of madness was not known. Li Xiao Long was picked up by a policeman who kept him under his arm. Xiao long might be one of the more lucky ones who had a chance to start a little stall selling barbecue mutton. Little Yunnan is now the leader among other younger vagrants, Huo Hong Chang was sent back to his hometown but had ran back to the rail station again. Feng Xiang was locked up due to thefts.
