A GOLDENEGGPRODUCTION PRODUCTION
In the province of Anhui, in eastern China, mountain ranges called “Huang” carry endless clouds that play hide and seek with rock and wet vegetation, within which flows and overflows a human torrent: tourists from all over the world who have come to swoon in front of this wonder of nature. And among them, an old man who, on his back, carries the mountains.
