Life is like a dream, you never know which one is real!

Let’s travel back in time and watch this story about a diplomat…

In a beautiful valley, children can catch as many fluttering butterflies as they want. By turning these butterflies into beautiful artworks, people made large sums of money and became materially comfortable. From a young age, the diplomat relied on catching these butterflies to get the money she needed for studies and daily expenses.

When the diplomat retires and returns to Taiwan, she realizes that the butterfly valley from her childhood no longer exists, destroyed by industrialization. Dejected, she makes up her mind to restore the butterfly valley. She transforms into a fluttering butterfly and flies toward the valley to bring back the beautiful scenery of the past.
