Heilongjiang River Valley in Northeast China is the most bitterly cold region in China, with long and frigid winters. The rivers and lakes start to freeze in November each year and begin to melt in April the next year. Though the lakes and rivers lose their vitality during this time, people get the chance to become closer to them.

Meanwhile, a more harsh reality is that the economy and population here keep declining, resulting in cities which appear silent and lonely.
