Set in the period of the Cultural Revolution in China, the film follows the story of a young girl as she is sent to the countryside for re-education. Adapted from a novel by Zhang Manling, the film reflects the kind and warm-hearted characteristics of the Dai folk despite living in a tumultuous period. Through the experience of a young girl, Sacrifice of Youth appeals in its dreamy portrayal of a youthful awakening.
