In spring 2016, San Qisheng master is building "Three Mysterious House" in Zhen Yuan of Da Pan Mountain. Xuan Tongzi is learning and playing the zither by himself in Zhen Yuan as well. There is no clear characters and events. Everything within the space and time is the included as part of the film: workers who are building the house, birds which are nesting, pups which are playing around, clouds, streams, dry woods, bamboos, people who are harvesting, talking, playing the zither, and etc.. The film doesn't use words to convey the message. Full of slow motions, blurry shots, and sounds, the only thing left is a strong spirit along with the time.
