When Ruoma was Seventeen Still


Being an orphan, 17-year-old Ruoma lives with her granny. She gets to know Ming who runs a photo studio in the town. Ming likes to eat the corn broiled by Ruoma. The poor and dejected Ming convinces Ruoma to join him in making money by posing with tourists for photos. Ruoma begins to fall for Ming, and Ming is also moved by the unostentatious Ruoma. Ming promises to take Ruoma to Kunming for sightseeing.

Unexpectedly the trip is eventful and Ruoma ends up seriously ill. After recovery, she returns to her original life, but then she receives Ming's photograph album. Instead of criticizing the young girl's yearning for city life, the director meticulously depicts how she hesitates between urban civilization and traditional values, as well as her emotional changes while growing up.
