颱風過後，溫泉斷水了，榮仔也在風雨中消失了。後媽雀仔每天打掃著無人上門的旅館，臉上掛著困惑與哀傷，雖然榮仔 的好兄弟正男不時前來幫忙關心，但財團正準備把山中的全部土地收購起來蓋別墅飯店。榮仔的女兒阿芬也從都市回到了山上，徬徨無措的她，卻指引了在山中迷路的導航系統調查員，也在父親留下的DV 影帶裡找到了回憶。災難劇變之後， 該修補的不只有眼前的斷橋殘路，還有家庭與心靈中或深或淺的傷痕，也許在看似無路的盡頭，才有著生命的出口。 本片以令人側目的風災為題材，描述臺灣人與土地的情懷以及韌性，並在最終找到了向前邁進的方向和力量，片中黑白的 畫面強調現實的沉痛，DV 裡頭的彩色錄像，卻提醒著我們過往的美麗。

Can they find another path and re-establish links with the buried hot spring, the lifeblood of the village? Together, Cho and Fen try to find the answer to Ying's secret on a journey that helps thembid goodbye to the past and find a new direction in life.
The movie uses black-and-white and colorvideo recordings to mix deep grief over the reality of the present with a reminder of the beauty ofthe past. It depicts the feelings Taiwanese people hold for the land and their tenacity and power tomove forward after catastrophe.
