Chi grew up on Happiness Road in Taiwan but has always been living in awe of the USA. Eventually her dreams became reality when she got the opportunity to move to the USA.

However, Chi’s dream move didn’t turn out the way she hoped it would. She became lost in her seemingly happy life. On a trip home for her grandmother's funeral, she begins to feel nostalgic about her childhood and starts to question her own supposed happiness, and the meaning of life.
