One of the Highest-Grossing Documentaries in 2019
The Most Powerful Taiwan Documentary in 2019.’
Behind Every Suffering, There is A Moving Desire.

 

"In giving without expecting any reward, you will see the power of companionship.”

There’s a group of people working silently in Taitung, Taiwan, taking care of elderly who lived alone, orphaned teenagers, volunteer fighting cancer and people who are struggling with their stressful life in the dark corners of the society.

They view suffering as the usual occurrence, they have no regret for their dedication. They believe that in giving till the end of ones’ life is enriching each other’s life.

The director interacted with the subjects for more than a year & a half for this documentary. Filming 7,000 minutes of this group of characters with a combination of more than 500 years of age, it bears witness to the challenges and hardships of the volunteers, the warmth and happiness in their camaraderie, and the power of mutual help. Some characters in the film might have passed on, but the warmth they projected lives on with another human being. In comparison to today’s indifferent society, the tears shed in these cases tell the story of another kind of love.

「付出不求收穫,終將看見陪伴的力量!」

有一群默默無名的人們,在台灣台東被遺忘的角落裡,傳遞著最真實的溫暖,給獨居老人、失親少年、罹癌志工、還有跟困厄生命搏鬥的人。

他們的信念是,將苦難視為如常,無悔付出,直到生命最終。因為愛是折返跑,豐富他人必將豐富自己。

導演歷經一年半的在地紀錄,一戶戶的拜訪、互動、在拍攝長度長達七千多分鐘的影片中,紀錄多組人物他們超過五百年的歲月時光,也真實刻劃志工所面臨的挑戰與苦樂,見證了陪伴的溫暖,互助的力量。影片中的人物,有些已經不復存在,但他們所傳遞的溫暖,已在另一個人的身上延續。相對現今冷漠的社會,個案們的真實告白眼淚,訴說著另一種愛的表白。
