Mstbon, a silent and isolated tribe deep in the mountain of Nantou, is the cradle of Atayal. The road to the tribe is very bumpy and winding, so it's inconvenient and difficult to go home for the residents. Therefore, most of youth move to big cities to pursue better lives.

"Such a beautiful tribe, why youth barely come back home?" Because of the words by his dad, Walis, the youth in the tribe, gave up the convenient life in the city and came back to his hometown alone. He hopes other youth can be influenced by his decision and be much more willing to go back to the hometown in order not to make the tribe become a forgotten and lost place.
