    Documentary

    Five years ago, Sheng-han and his friends left the protest camp without achieving any goals. In the current Sunflower Student Movement, they refused to accept such a dead end again that they organized the Executive Yuan occupation. Unexpectedly, it resulted in leaving the psychological trauma and self-reflection towards the movement.
    It is a coming-of-age story about young activists embedded in a huge social movement. They walked the line, walked in a self-consciousness process by experiencing the struggles, fears, and failures.
