Directed by Huang Zumo, the romantic blockbuster was a milestone moment in entertainment, as it was the first Chinese movie that included a kissing scene after reform and opening-up in the late 1970s, helping to break the taboo of on-screen intimacy, thus ushering in a new era for China's domestic film industry.

It tells the story of the daughter of a retired Kuomintang general. She returns from the U.S. to visit Lushan Mountain, east China's Jiangxi province, and then falls in love with the son of a Communist Party of China (CPC) general.

But the story did not end there; it is everlasting. As the film became an all-time classic, Lushan Mountain, already a scenic spot and where the film was shot, has become a sacred place for love. A small cinema on the hillside of Lushan Mountain still shows the movie today to millions of tourists and even got a certificate in 2002 from the Guinness World Records for the longest first run of a film in one cinema. The film also inspired an annual film culture event, Lushan International Romance Film Week.
