The setting is in Taiwan's 1950s to 1970s (and according to the screen writer, it would end on year 2000). Its story revolves around a certain village where you can find love and friendship. Each family in the village has a story to tell.
An absolutely tremendous drama. I can't believe more people aren't watching it. I watched it with my mom on TV while it was airing in Taiwan, and even though I didn't grow up there, my mom did, and we laughed, cried, felt sad and excited for all the developments in those people's lives. We watched the kids in the village grow up and start their own families, go through problems in life and love, become closer than ever. It's a coming-of-age drama that everyone should watch once in their lives.
