An ancient Chinese poet once described a dream-like place called the Peach Blossom Land. No
one could ever find it until a couple of crooks stumbled onto it. Two crooks, Old Li and Big Wang
escape by chance into a remote and mysterious place called the Peach Blossom Land. They find
the people there behave strangely and know little about the outside world, so they decide to take
advantage of people's naivety and establish their own "New Continent"as Columbus once did.
However, the local people carry on with their usual life style, unaffected by the plan to trick them.
The local people seem to have a mysterious power which allows them to live wisely and happily,
causing the outsiders to be lost in the Land.
