The opening segment by director Guan Hu, The Eve (前夜), is about an engineer, Lin Zhiyuan (played by Huang Bo), racing against time to perfect an automatic flag-raising mechanism before the founding ceremony of the People’s Republic of China on October 1, 1949.

The second story Passing by (相遇), directed by Zhang Yibai, sees a scientist, Gao Yuan, played by Zhang Yi, work on China’s first atom bomb who had to bid farewell forever to his lover in the 1960s.

The third story The Champion (夺冠), directed by Xu Zheng, is about how a young boy from Shanghai named Dong Dong (played by Han Haolin) helped his neighbors watch TV for the China women’s national volleyball team‘s Olympic gold medal win in 1984.

The fourth story Going Home (回归), directed by Xue Xiaolu, is about a Chinese executive delegation and local policemen preparing for the return of Hong Kong from British rule to China in 1997. The 12-second silence between the British and Chinese anthems during the Hong Kong handover ceremony is also reflected in this part.

The fifth story Hello Beijing (北京你好), directed by Ning Hao, is about a taxi driver who gives a ticket to the opening ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympics to a boy from the Sichuan earthquake zone though it was intended to be a birthday gift to his aloof son.

The sixth story The Guiding Star (白昼流星), directed by Chen Kaige, is about a pair of homeless brothers who witness the landing of the capsule of the Shenzhou 11 crewed spacecraft on November 18, 2016, a moment of national pride that touched them.

One for All (护航), directed by Wen Muye, follows the story of a top female fighter jet pilot Lü Xiaoran who helps her fellow pilots accomplish a smooth aerial performance at the Military Parade of the 70th Anniversary of the Victory in the Second Sino-Japanese War in 1945.[5]
