An old Chinese myth "rebottled" like old wine in new wineskins takes us on a journey in time,
space and emotions. Obligation, beauty, freedom, truth, love and fairies. So he started climbing.
The process was slow. He gained courage from love. He never changed his heart. "We will meet and
live together," he said.
