Chungliao Township, the banana kingdom, has been hit by earthquakes, mudslides and is full of pylons and garbage fields, a town that was once prosperous and is now poor. The simple, gorgeous hometown that Chungliao villagers imagine has long disappeared. That hometown image exists only in the far away past and only reappears in dreams. Yet, dreams could come true!

A group of young Chungliao villagers are recovering from the trauma of the 921 earthquake. Inspired by the effort and hard work of reconstruction teams from outside, these young people are escaping their long frustration and initiating a series of actions to change the destiny of their hometown.
