Updated: 2012-03-02 22:58

Zhu Wenjun and his classmate Zeng Xiangzhi were both born in the 1980s. After graduation, they came to teach at a primary school in a remote mountainous area. The closed off environment made them desperate to leave.

But later, when they passed the civil service exam and became civil servants, which is a sound and stable job, they began to miss the kids.

On the third day of their new job, they quit without telling their parents and went back to the mountain.
