Director Statement

" There’s something different with the children of Hualien’s Faith and Love Youth academy, for they can not get love and recognition from the family, the school, or the society. How important love is for a child? In the summer of 2006, more than 30 of them set off for a 20-day 1000-kilometer around-the-island tour. Reverend Huang and Youth detention officer Lu Su-Wei risked their job to accompany these children to accomplish this challenge, for they believe this one-in-a-million chance of success will bring an incredible change to those children, whom are incurable in the eyes of others. Are they going get through this challenge of life? " - Huang Chia-Chun
