A love letter of a marriage proposal, A Kuei, who is mentally disabled, takes us back to his hometown, Penghu Jibei, where he has left for 10 years.
Although the personnel are no longer the same in the past 10 years, A Kuei, who was placed in the house of Bethany in Pingtung, still keeps the beautiful sceneries in his memory, the summer breeze, the crystal-clear sea, the golden beach, and the classmates who are working in the water activity center
In A Kuei’s world, he thought what he thought is what he had. We have been invited by his beautiful imaginations. On his back-home journey which was intertwined with reality, we saw the passion for his life and the humanistic landscape of Jibei.

Director Statement

Mental disability is not the same as emotional disability, we will inevitably have a prejudice against mentally disabled students in the house of correction, some of the prejudices are malicious, but some of are with good intentions, it is not only a morality is-sue, that is because of we don’t have much time to get to know them. People are getting along with by this way already, not to mention about the misfit person with mental disability, no one really listened to what they want to say? what do they really want?
Filming process by following these two brothers back home, we saw the hope for a better life, their emotional attachment, and the difficulties they will have. No matter how many twists and turns through their way to growing up, after experiencing so many ordeals, they still pay back with an innocent smile toward the world, that smile is the greatest healing and blessing to life.
