Storyline

80-year-old widower Chin-mao lives alone in rural Pingxi and frequents the hospital. His son and daughter, Yi-cheng and Yu-chen, stay in big cities for a living. One day Chin-mao is admitted to the hospital due to stomach pains, and Yi-cheng and Yu-chen have a heated argument about how to take care of their father. An unforseen accident forces Chin-mao to accept his deteriorating conditions and agree to stay in a nursing home. Sickness, death and a suit too old to fit gradually tear down his will to live; even his grandson's wedding cannot cheer him up. The thoughtful Yu-chen has a new suit tailor-made for her father so they can all celebrate the wedding as a family. But Chin-mao just wants to wear the new suit and walks his last mile back home.
