The show focuses on 15 people who come from different parts of China and find themselves on an isolated mountain of Tong Lu. They are given the opportunity to help each other to achieve their respective dreams and but they must first create a new home, be self-sufficient and earn money.

The program, which includes a number of Chinese festivals, will bow on Dragon TV on June 29.
