Although Taiwan is an island surrounded by the sea, its people fear the sea since the politics, the history and the religious beliefs make people turn their back to the sea. Two leading characters, LIAO Hong-ji, a writer of marine literature and Ray CHIN, the underwater photographer, take the audience into the sea. They prompt the audience to understand the sea and to rethink about the connection between Taiwanese and the sea.
