Urumchi - capital city of Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region in China and home to the Turkic people, the Uyghurs, is the departure point for this film. The city, which is marked by the ambivalence between its Uyghur tradition and global modernity, is home to the musician Perhat, who like many other musicians from the region had no ideas about ever leaving the city. This film, by Mukaddas Mijit, is about music that is caught up in the tension between tradition and modernity. Mukaddas Mijit is an Uyghur ethnomusicologist and filmmaker. A Han blogger wrote about Perhat saying, He is bringing sincerity and honesty to all of us, and this is what our utilitarian society lacks the most.
