Aga left Hengchun for Taipei, hoping to become the singer in a band. After ten years of hard work, he returns home, his dream unfulfilled. Tomoko is a Japanese model. She is asked to put together a local band to warm up the audience of an upcoming Japanese super star who will soon perform in a Beach concert in Hengchun. However, recruiting the band members proves to be as difficult a task as the search for the famous seven samurai.
