Taiwan in the 70s, seeing the end of an old political reign and foreseeing a time of upheavals. Lin-lang witnesses her lover’s participation in a big political rally heralding the glory of democratic movements. Her dissident lover is later persecuted and jailed. Devastated by rumours of his death, Lin-lang becomes a radical and is captured and sentenced for 13 years. Set free, she learns too late her lover is still alive and is married with a child. Her old comrades are on the other hand facing new challenges from a changed world. Ideal lost, love lost… Lin-lang has to face the most critical moment of her life, all alone.
