In the big city of Beijing, two high-powered parents depart for business trips, entrusting their precocious daughter Renxing to her grandfather Zhu Zhigen. They embark on a journey to his rural hometown so he can set his pet nightingale free – to honor a promise he made to his wife, encountering hilarious detours along the way.
