In China, while the economy made a booming growth, the problem of abandon babies has become a series social problem. Moral, ethical and affection are ignored more and more. We shouldn’t realize the problems just when we must face the choice of Life and death. On the way to school with his mother, Qiang had a car accident and became an invalid. Qiang’s mother faith in Qiang gradually infected Daxiang, however. Her care for Daxiang also helped the little girl feel maternal love once again. The abandoned baby Xin had a serious brain tumor. It was inoperable, so he was abandoned to die. He was sent to a hospice care center for babies, where he was loved by kind-hearted people. Ying, a rebellious country girl, left the city where she worked and returned home. Together with her father and younger brother Xiaoxia, she began to lead a simple life. Sometimes, the continuation of life is not contingent on the success of crossing Nai River, but on whether we live together and stick it out. This is a story of a family about the HOPE, FAITH, and LOVE.
