Teenager Da Chen gathers soil from the riverbank near his village before he leaves to attend university in Beijing.  Those grains bear witness to his past and contain the now silent sounds of the river.  Later, spilled onto the dry earth of the North, they will merge two parts of Da's life as does the second volume of his lyrical trilogy of memoirs.'
