Huang Haoran and his wife Wang Li worked in a large-scale private factory about six months in Fuqing City of southeast China's Fujian Province, but their two daughters Huang Shiyun and Huang Jiayun were looked after by Huang Haoran's mother Peng Zhulan in their hometown, which is located at Mujiangchong Village of Huangjia Township in Longchang City, southwest China's Sichuan Province.

For family reunion, Peng Zhulan and her grandchildren embarked on a long journey to Fujian. This is the first time the little siblings and their grandmother came to Fujian by bullet train. However, before nearly 11 hours of railway journey to reach Fuzhou, the trio needs to spend about four hours taking a coach bus from their hometown to southwest China's Chongqing and stay overnight. After knowing the couple's family situation, the factory arranged a room exclusively for Peng Zhulan and a car to pick up Peng and her granddaughters at Fuzhou South Railway Station in Fuzhou.

The factory is still busy running despite the Spring Festival around the corner. Huang Haoran and his wife Wang Li are busy working as usual, leaving Peng and her granddaughters in the dormitory looking forward to the Lunar New Year holidays.
