    Default deepest province

    Dear Friends,


    In a film A was trying to persuade B to go with him to live in a foreigh country and A says:

    "Come on, you live here in the deepest province."

    Does 'deepest province' have a figurative (or slang) meaning? I cannot find it in any dictionary.

    Thank you.

    Default Re: deepest province

    It suggests remote/isolated/a long way from the bustle of city life to me.
