In 1987, the President Chiang Ching-kuo announced to lift the “Order of Martial Law”. 19-year-old Yu-Chin failed the college entrance exam which disappointed her mom. Therefore, Yu-Chin was asked to move to the southern town and focus on her studies.
Though Yu-Chin resented being told what to do, she didn’t have other choices. She arrived the town alone. Seeing herself as a temporary passerby, she behaved apathetically toward the guys who wanted to be friend with her. She seems so detached and distant, yet she’s much more sensitive and vulnerable than she looks.
People who are easily caught up in love are not necessarily the beautiful ones, but usually the sensitive ones. Yu-Chin is both beautiful and sensitive. However, she built an invisible emotional wall between her and the town since she was looking forward to the city life and the future from the deepest of heart.
