Pingzhou used to be a poor and backward fishing village in Foshan in the early 1980s. After about 40 years of development and reform and opening up, the district has developed into one of the four largest jade markets in China. It is now a major processing and production base for Burmese jade in China and one of the birthplaces of China's southern style of jade-carving. In 2014, Pingzhou Jade Ware Street was recognized as a 4A tourist destination.

The documentary is one of the three documentary films featuring Foshan Guicheng's culture. The other two are "Lin's Hong Quan" and "Dragon Boat", featuring the Chinese martial art Hong Quan and the Dragon Boat culture in Guicheng, Foshan.
