Presented by legendary Chinese filmmaker Wong Kar-wai (In the Mood for Love), this heartwarming, lightly-fictionalized drama is based on the life of piano prodigy Huang Yu-Siang (playing himself), who was born blind in rural Taiwan.

Growing up in a loving environment, the precocious Siang grew up with no barriers. When he is accepted at a school for the arts in Taipei, Siang finds himself on his own for the first time and has to compete on the same playing field as sighted students. His overly protective mother is reluctant to leave him behind but has faith that he will be able to manage and indeed flourish. With his winning personality, Siang makes friends easily but his deepest connection is with the sweet and beautiful Jie, a fast-food worker who dreams of being a dancer. Siang’s spirits begin to soar with Jie’s attention. His determination and optimism inspire her to go after her dreams as well.
