This experimental illustration film broke the traditional illustration form. Starting from the Chinese character "馍 (MO)", focusing on the phenomenon in Chinese folk culture that a person needs to eat "steamed bread (MO)" during his life experience of important things such as marriage, funeral, childbirth, etc., the reciprocating cycle and infinite entanglement between the Chinese character "馍", "生 (life)" and "死 (death)" were presented in the film. The story part of the video is actually composed of 81 illustrations, which also symbolizes the 81 difficult situations that people in Chinese culture need to experience and solve in their lives.
