Zhujinnong’s house is located in the mountains of Northwest-China where clouds run through the vast green valleys. He’s a shibi, the communicator between the Gods of nature and the community. Edge of the Clouds follows Zhujinnong’s struggle between Qiang culture and contemporary China. Somewhere between the mountain peak and the down below valley lies the ancient spirituality.
