The film was shot during the event that some countries boycott the cotton from China's Xinjiang. The occurrence of the incident had a huge impact on China, so that the lives of the four protagonists who were far from home also caused ripples. In the face of this incident, the four women expressed their incomprehension and even dissatisfaction to their families and foreign friends.
