Ai Chao means Artemisia. It’s also the name of this film’s protagonist β€” a 58-year-old Taiwanese woman. When Ai Chao was young, without her mother’s approval, she married to her mainland born husband who was 20 years her senior. After her husband died 20 years ago, she raised her son and her daughter by herself.

Now, not only her children have grown up, but the social norm in Taiwan has also changed. It’s Ai Chao’s turn to face the reality in her family affairs. Despite the conflicts and gaps in generations and culture, the bond and love in a family ultimately prevail.
