The film portrays the daily life of Taiwan duck farmers of 1960s. Xiaoyue leads a simple and happy life with her adopted father, who is good at raising ducks. Her natural brother is an actor of Taiwanese opera troupe and threatens to take Xiaoyue with him to start his own troupe. But her adopted father sells all ducks to pay for Xiaoyue.

This film is also another progressive step in the healthy realist film genre.
