The film is inspired by the folk classic "Kangding Qing Ge", which means "Kangding Love Song" in Chinese, and takes place in Kangding, a picturesque town in the Ganzi Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, in southwest China’s Sichuan Province.
Alec Su plays an army officer who falls in love with Ju Wenpei’s character, Dawa, a local girl.
Kangding is often associated with the song, which has been a favorite in China since the 1940s.
The film also features singer Pu Bajia in various scenes.
"New Kangding Qing Ge" is scheduled for release in China next month.
