These two young siblings were raised by their grandmother in a rural village of Lijiang where people still practise Dongba language (a series of ancient dialects and the ancient pictographic writing) and Dongba culture. When their grandmother passed away, Xinxin and Musu wanted to follow the heart of their most beloved one, their grandmother, so they decided to start an endless journey to look for "the Southern Edge of the Cloud" a place their grandmother dearly loved although they do not really know where it is exactly.

In the midst of their journey, they met by accident a young French guy Loic (addicted to smartphone) who came to Yunnan to celebrate his birthday with his friends but unfortunately abandoned by them in the middle of nowhere in Yunnan.

Only until a Naxi Granny gave him a little memo written in Dongba language, it became the secret link between this young couple…
