U.S. Premiere


In giving without expecting any reward, you will see the power of companionship. There’s a group of volunteers working silently in Taitung, Taiwan, taking care of the elderly who live alone, orphaned teenagers, patients fighting cancer and people who are struggling with their stressful lives in the dark corners of society.

About the directors:

Chen Chih-an Hsieh Hsih-chih

The directors interacted with the subjects for more than a year and a half for this documentary. Filming 7,000 minutes of this group of people 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 key people in the film may have passed on, but the warmth they projected lives on through the new volunteers.
