Through the twin cities of Beijing and Hong Kong, a young female journalist is described A spiritual journey to return home. The protagonist in the book, Wu Jinyu, is an ordinary courtyard boy. Her mother left her and went to the United States when she was a child. Her childhood was spent missing her mother and complaining about her father. The estrangement of her relationship with her father made her like to confide in strangers. She repeatedly worked with many men, looking for love, looking for mother, and looking for herself. These men, artists, musicians, publishers, cafe owners, lively images on paper, around Wu Jinyu outline a map of the Beijing literary circle, telling the secrets hidden by generations .
