台灣導演,雲南題材,讓人想到《無米樂》,不同的是觀點與紀錄方法。雲南平寨村有一種古老品種的紅穀子,當地農民雖抱怨外來化學肥料對農產不好,但真願意用古老技術種植老品種紅穀子的農民卻很少。本片導演跟隨這樣的一個農家,看到他們的堅持,卻也看到他們難以擺脫貧窮的困境,這戶農家本身也像紅穀子一樣,是現代農村中的稀有老種。

A flaman found an ancient species in the Pingzhai Village. With his proposal, three households started to plant the species in an old traditional way. Unexpectedly, the issue echoes around the authorities and the academia, which then put a high premium on the local agriculture. An excess of fertilizer on the crops in the past has seriously damaged the soil, yet the ancient species still grows well. It somehow reminds the farmers to cherish what they originally own.
