Feng is an only child and his parents are longing to have grandchildren, but it is difficult for a gay man to fulfill his parent’s dream.
Fong and Fang are a gay couple together for eight years. Even after same-sex marriage has been legalized in Taiwan, Fong, his family’s only son, still cannot accept Fang’s proposal. Fong is also being pressured to have offspring, and he actually wants to have a child of his own. Fong’s student, Sayuri, happens to be pregnant at this very moment and seeks help from Fong to get an abortion, but Fong comes up with a different plan… Will everything work out for Fong?
