Synopsis

Ah Da’s father is gone. So a mother has lost her son, a woman lost her husband and A-da lost his idol. Life goes on, but each of them keeps his own secrets. A-da’s granny is a victim of a fraud but she refuses to go to the police as she is too proud and stubborn. Meanwhile, A-da gets into big trouble and needs a great amount of money. Based on the autobiographical story of acclaimed TV Drama director Chu Yu-Ning, the film can also be seen as a personal diary and an ode to his grandmother and his family.

“奶奶,你知道吗?我们之间很多看起来好像不重要的事,其实却不小心改变了我。”阿达写信给奶奶,回想起小时候和奶奶、妈妈一起生活,到长大后和妻子发生过的点点滴滴。随着一段段的回忆推涌而至,关于那个家人之间隐藏多年的秘密,他开始懂了。

在阿达小时候,爸爸就过世了。奶奶、妈妈和阿达的生活中从此都缺少一个重要的人,尽管还有彼此作伴,却为了不让其他两人担心,渐渐学会隐瞒。被诈骗集团相中的奶奶独自与歹徒周旋,甚至闹进警察局而一发不可收拾;年轻时是歌星的妈妈为了专心照顾儿子和婆婆,把内心的情感和梦想藏起来,假装过去的自己不曾存在;而阿达自己也闯下大祸,他根本不知道怎么处理这个急需一大笔钱来解决的超大难题。
