The modern drama is based on the true story of Li Baoguo, a professor at Hebei Agricultural University, who is "an outstanding representative of the excellent communists in the new era," "a model of contemporary intellectuals," and "leading representatives of poverty alleviation". The drama presents Prof. Li’s industrious life: he had been rooting in the Taihang Mountains for 35 years. He had worked tirelessly to engage in ecological construction in the mountains and the cause of enriching the people through science and technology, and led the local people struggling to embark on the road to poverty alleviation and prosperity. In the end, Prof. Li was left with a sudden heart attack because of overwork. In the play, several real story plots were selected to present Prof. Li’s dedication to the people such as setting the classrooms in the mountains and forests, checking the disaster regardless of his own sickness, giving students generous help, etc.
