Over the decades, the Malayan Communist Party fought a guerrilla war in the jungle for independence. When a baby was born during the war, they sent it out of the jungle to ensure its survival. Boluomi is one of those babies.@@‘Boluomi’ is a famous fruit everyone appreciates in Malaysia. But it is also Yi-fan’s father’s name, Boluomi, whom past history remains unknown to all, and with whom Yi-fan’s relation remains non-existent.@@Unbeknownst to Yi-fan, some hidden secrets from a bygone era seem to taint their father- son relation and poisons everything around. Besides, like many in his generation, Yi-fan is forced to flee Malaysia because of the unequal right to education due to racial discrimination. His journey drives him overseas, Taiwan. In Taipei, Yi-fan succeeds in making a living and meets with a Filipino illegal worker, Laila. Both strangers to this city, they have no language in common to speak, but they do share the same sense of nostalgia and homesickness, and eventually fall in love with each other.
