Two girls in the bloom of youth meet at a vocational training program. Afterwards, their lives move on to completely different directions. They are both growing up in broken homes. Pei searches for hope in love, while Chen struggles to avoid her parents' fate. As they approach the age of 18, the undercurrents of their lives surface nearly overwhelming them.


This is a story about abandonment, but also about love and courage. Although the story comes from a remote area of Taiwan, it asks a question pondered the world over: how can an unloved life find strength of her own?
