In the centre of the city of Beijing there is an ancient residential area named Shichahai (‘hai’ means ‘a big lake’), which has a history of four hundred years. The inhabitants used to think the lake as two parts – Qianhai (the front lake) and Houhai (the rear lake), with the Yinding Bridge as the division. This telefilm records the life of Old Man Jing, the barber, as well as the life of a dozen of his old customers. The group of old men, aged from 65 to 96, are mostly ordinary working people. In their placid retirement, haircut means quite an occasion to them. It seems only during this activity that they are tasting the sweetness of life.
