Husband aged 55 but looks like 70, and wife aged 45 but looks like 55. From his white and pale face we know that he is a mine digger. For the past 30 years, every year he has to stay underground for 9 months non-stop digging and digging. But what he gets is US$150 per month. Wife is looking forward for his return after 9 months hard working and hoping that he can share the last 3 months with the family. For every year thousand and thousand of mine diggers die in Chinas mine fields. He is one of the lucky one who can survive that long.
