Xi’s desperate attempt to pay her husband’s medical bills and save his life has trapped her in a web of deceit. With the chief of the town as her accomplice, she has borrowed $20,000 from two different men in exchange for a promise of marriage when her husband passes. Xi’s husband, Sheng, had a throat incision due to severe myelitis and depends on a resuscitator to survive. The money is needed in part to build a bicycle-driven resuscitator to replace the manual resuscitator that needs to be pressed by other villagers all day long, 18-21 times per minute. Sheng’s life deteriorates with each day that the resuscitator is not finished, and every single villager—including Zhuzi, Fugui, Chief and Sheng’s mother—has been weighing the pros and cons of helping others.
