Short Film Profile

Five coal miners are trapped for 176 hours after an explosion in the mine. Sha Zi is a naïve and large-hearted young man who saves the lives of his four buddies with a simple yet clever act. He uses his uncomplicated mind and pure intentions to shoulder, all by himself, the intense fear and desperation caused by the catastrophe, with one single objective – to extend the brothers’ hope for a better chance of surviving the calamity, for as long as possible while awaiting rescue. Amazingly, he has succeeded. But sadly, he cannot save his own.
