What does it mean to be a man?
Ming-lei and Ke-wei were the best of friends, yet they were also each other’s biggest rival. Growing up together, their parents were always quick to compare the boys to each other, inadvertently creating a rivalry that would last a lifetime.
The story explores the lives of these two boys as they mature into adulthood, different encounters they have along the way, and how they shoulder their parents’ expectations and comparison with their peers. Taking place throughout two different time periods, the story follows the characters through their thirties and twenties in parallel storylines with different actors. As scenes from different time periods intersect with one another, the problems that both men experience are examined through their daily lives. From past to present, traditional values that society instills into men are called into question.
