SYNOPSIS
In 1972, 17-year-old Chi-wang becomes involved in the National Taiwan University Philosophy Department Incident.
In 1990, 17-year-old Kung is dragged involuntarily into the Wild Lily Student Movement.
In 2014, 17-year-old Shao-wei joins the Sunflower Movement.

All three movements have a crucial influence on the thinking of young people over each period. Their confusion, anxiety, curiosity, and determination to pursue their own ideas become part of each generation’s collective memory. But, there are also choices each person has to make, when faced with love, friendship and family.

In 1972, Chi-wang, a high school rugby player who writes for the school magazine, plunges into the world of university students, where love becomes a path to freedom. But, during the White Terror era in Taiwan, he can’t have predicted that one has to pay for love with blood.

In 1990, Taiwanese martial law is lifted. High school boy, Kung, falls for a male teacher. However, his frankness and passion burn out in the game of love. He gets badly hurt while exploring his body and sexuality.

In 2014, young hooligan, Shao-wei, joins all sorts of gangs and groups, in a search for recognition. Shao-wei’s relationship with his father is conflicted, until the day his father breaks his silence and tells Shao-wei a secret he has kept since he, too, was seventeen.
