Synopsis Tin Long, a 17-year-old boy, suffers a heavy blow after his best friend Chi Hong’s suicide for no reason. He can hardly accept nor understand it, yet school life carries on. Under the warmest sunlight bury the deepest sadness and loneliness. Putting together the fragments of the bygones which have been neglected before, the truth of Chi Hong’s suicide gradually surfaces. Understanding the sorrow and desperation from which his best friend has been suffering, how should Tin Long go his own way? On the edge of life or death, how would Tin Long survive in the cruel world? Would God give a helping hand? Who will listen to our purest hearts?

only focus on the mainland market, but also actively develop the Taiwan market
and discover more possibility of creation."
