Gua-Shan is a “village in the city” that seems to be left behind in the rapid growing society. The film records people’s ordinary daily life in this mundane village with a slow and mild tone. During the community’s move, the village of Gua-Shan disappears in a silence. "What is deepest in man is his skin." When the camera explores the space and observes people with enough patience, the moving moments of life and time will spring up.
