目前正輕快地邁向民主化的緬甸,它的時間並非全然是往前走的。就在緬甸的政府軍與克欽獨立軍正對峙的現在,原本在山區採玉的財團被迫暫時撤離礦區。時間頓時凝住,一批又一批的窮人帶著簡單的鐵鍬,趕往這個暫時不屬於任何人的仙境採玉。他們一齊在天堂做了一個發財夢,其中沒有任何一人希望從這個夢中醒來。導演趙德胤將鏡頭轉向他剛出獄不久的哥哥,要問他為何當時要沉迷於吸毒,為何要遺棄家人?而這也將是一部企圖描繪在翁山蘇姬再度為緬甸人帶來希望的現在,在這個可能是目前亞洲最窮國家,人們繼續在幽暗角落生存的影片。

Currently, Myanmar is undergoing some form of democratization. As the war between the government and the Kachin Independence Army (KIA) is still going, the corporations are forced to halt their operation in the jade mines. Time seems to have frozen in this war zone while waves of poor workers flock to the area. Carrying simple digging tools, they arrive in this paradise, dreaming of getting rich overnight; none of them has ever woken from that dream.
