After four decades, a group of veteran singers gather together again. The songs they wrote when they were young had once changed the fate of the island. However, time took away their youth and changed the island’s soul. Not only a new national identity has formed but so many new music genres have emerged since then. Can the innocent songs they sang back in the old days still be relevant in the new era? Or could they speak for only the souls of a particular generation?

On that memorable night in history, the veteran singers are re-united and sing those beautiful songs they wrote 40 years ago. The unpredictability in life, cruelty of fate and the complicated relations between Taiwan and China are gradually revealed in their singing.
