Three-quarters of this short novel chronicle eldest son Leng' s thoughts, conversations, and actions in endeavoring to fulfill his dying father's charge: "Ah Leng, you're grown up now and I expect you to nurture your character, be a man responsible for bringing up a family of your own. Offspring are very essential to carry down the ancestral line, you know. Of course in so bringing up your own family you must not forget your own parents for they are the ones who brought you up."
