This is a film about searching and losing.Two threads intertwine and form the whole of the story. One of which is about my husband, a man from a JI family. He could be a descendent of the Pingpu tribe, but neither he nor his family remembers their origin.

The other is about the tragedy in which Xiaoling Village, one of the few places in Taiwan comprehensively preserving Pingpu culture, was destroyed overnight during the Typhoon Morakot disaster.

We try to extend the time and observe the rising and falling of life and the cycle of nature, so that we can walk out of sadness and realize the ever-changing nature and wisdom of life.
