The trace records for 108 days tell the story of a pilgrimage disrupted, unfold one's deep desire to become a monk, and present a confused life without any direction.

Kuan Yuan quit his job without telling his mother. In a temple located in Sichuan, he got his robe ready and was determined to become a monk. During the year, various dilemmas have arisen in the process of his self-realization, such as the conversion of his friend to Buddhism, the death of his beloved family, the challenges in the pilgrimage, and the decrease of his master. Under a dual pressure from both the ideal life and the reality life, he gradually fell into confusion and lost his way.
