The literal translation of the title of this movie is: The Sound of Stream.
In the era of reform in China, enterprises are getting rid of those business that makes no money, and kindergarten for the employees are the first to go, because not only it does not make any money, it was in fact losing money. The problem is that enterprises are getting rid of such business in a hurry, while no substitute had been established in the society yet, and as a result, this created many social problems.
One the surface, this movie eulogizing Grandma Tao's selfless sacrifice of starting a private owned kindergarten at her own home, enduring hostility from her relative, but eventually succeeded, but in reality, this movie actually was actually warning the society of this problem.
Ironically, such warning was unheard, and in fact, the kindergarten of the film studio where this movie was produced was closed several months later after this movie was made, and all of its employees, including the film crew that made this movie had scramble to find new kindergartens for their kids.
