Leading up to the 2020 Taiwanese presidential election, a pivotal moment for a young democracy, Yu-Ann discovers that she is eight weeks pregnant — news she decides to keep to herself, given her husband’s preoccupation with opening a Ba-Wan (dumpling) store. Before Yu-Ann can find the right moment to tell her husband about the pregnancy, she unexpectedly suffers a miscarriage. Devastated, Yu-Ann is comforted by her partner, leaving both to wrestle with the inherent unpredictability of the future.
