The film is based on the novel of Memtimin Hoshur, one of the leading writers of modern Uyghur literature.
[Background] As Sunni Muslims, Uyghurs have been rejected all types of alcoholic beverages for a millennium. However, following the increased influence of China in Chinese Turkistan since the late 19th century, particularly after the establishment of the PRC in 1949, alcoholism and alcohol abuse become one of the major social issues in Xinjiang. As a result, it has caused not only series financial and family problems, but also unexpected social disorders. The film describes one of such events as a comedy.
