Sitting in thoughtful silence, old man Yang cradles a cloth-draped
jar, smoking absentmindedly outside an austere building. Though
Yang's son tries to convince him to go home together, he would
rather be left alone. To reduce conflict, the daughter-in-law
arranges a car for him.
Reacting to his stubbornness, Yang's wife bombards him with
cynical complaints. However, the more she complains, the stronger
he focuses on a single desire.
