This is a story about how to extend life at the expense of life. When the ice and snow melt each spring, all the Chinese naturopaths fish swim toward few small rivers around Dali Lake in droves to find the purest freshwater in order to spawn eggs, but the cost is often their own life. All their natural enemies, from a variety of migratory birds to foxes or badgers, are waiting for the this delicious food automatically delivered to their mouth. Another spring came, and the Chinese naturopaths fish were ready again. This trip, what will be waiting for them? Can this kind of race that has lived millions of years continue to exist?
