'.WATER OF LIFE AND DEATH.'

The first lunar month, the start of a new year.
On the frozen lake surface of Qinghai Lake, Zhou, the Buddhist Practitioner and his friends are delivering supplies to the temple built on the isolated island at the lake centre. At their own peril, they venture on the melting glaciers resulted from global warming. Sadly, humans aren’t the only victims; the wildlife around Qinghai Lake suffers the same fate. Urban development and the opening up of the tourism industry have destroyed the greenery and wetlands surrounding the lake. They pose a threat to the life of the wildlife, whose regular sanctuary has suddenly become their last resting place.
