River Road is the story of two Yugur ethnic minority brothers, Adikeer and Bartel, and their journey travelling through the Hexi Corridor of the Silk Road to go home to their parents. In their trek from their grandfather’s home near town to the distant grasslands where their parents have moved to find pastures to herd their sheep, the two boys are confronted with barren landscapes, abandoned villages, and decaying relics. Their journey becomes a search for their identity as Yugurs. The changing environment of the corridor exposes the loss of grazing lands to industrialization and traditions to a modern world. The loss of traditions in a harsh modern world are recurring themes in the films of director Li Ruijun, whose previous feature, Fly With The Crane, was screened to the popular acclaim at the 2013 Singapore Chinese Film Festival.
