Liu Fang, a Beijing youth, fled after accidentally pushing Luo Chun Yang off a cliff. Liu Fang left home and walked arduously in the snow to look for Lei Xiao Man. Liu Fang fainted on the way, but a passing carriage found him and took him back to the Corps. With the help of Lei Xiao Man, Ciu Li Li, and Jia Zheng Jun, Liu Fang was able to stay in the Corps. This starts the emotional tellings of the life in the Great Northern Wilderness Corps in the early 1970s.
