Winter after Winter, shot in black-and-white, is set during the Japanese occupation of Manchuria. It is 1944 and the Japanese are searching for young men who can work as forced labour. In order to secure the bloodline, father Lao Si asks his youngest son to make sister-in-law Kun pregnant. Just when the shy boy is stooping over Kun, he and his brother are taken away. Without his father knowing, the youngest son returns seven months later and hides in Kun’s cellar. As a result, Kun does get pregnant, which leads to all kinds of complications.
