Based on the music piece 'Shen Ren Chang', one of the oldest, anonymous, tunes in the literature for the Chinese Zither Gu Qin, it attempts to reconstruct, with contemporary media, human condition in a past time of our ancestors, which is preserved to us solely by means of a small number of written texts and this one piece of written music.
