Five women of different backgrounds and class have been struggling with their own issues for years. They met each other occasionally, and decide to go on a trip together.
Lahou has always wanted to run away from her indigenous origin, yet finds herself moving closer to the tradition she used to repel after giving birth to her kids.
July leaves her hometown to build up her own family, but as her kids grow, she finds herself left alone at home.
Pei is a journalist, an expert of making normal people’s life story special.
Jade was once a laborer, then becomes the CEO of an international brand while raising two children alone.
Fang studied and lived in USA since her youth, and decides to settle in Taiwan after her daughter and husband passed.
The five women meet occasionally, and go on a trip together. There they realize that they are only characters of an author’s unfinished novel, only existing to reflect the author’s thinking. To win back their own right to tell the story, the women rebel against the author.
