This film is based on a true story about a white-collar Chinese worker that lives in Beijing. After he reads the fantasy novel “Lost Horizon”, he begins an extraordinary journey with a backpack to find his “Shangri-La”. His quest to find it was so intense that he crossed 6 provinces and 12 cities, passing by the Shangri-La and the Tibet region.

On his way, he meets and talks with many travelers such as a Tibetan Thangka master, a Wudang Kong Fu master, a hundred years old Daoist priest and a philosophy professor. Once he understands their advice, he follows his own feelings to realize that he was guided to a mysterious place.
