Lanyu-Orchid Island, is a small tropical island where its aboriginals take preys on the flying fish, a symbol of bliss and abundance, to make their living. Three young man Behong, Jeddah and Qingkuang known on the island as the “Three Musketeers” for their life long friendship and strong bond are enjoying their little piece of tranquility.
One summer day, a beautiful young girl named Zing arrives in this small island from Taipei. She is on a business trip to survey remote regions for cellular coverage and will inadvertently change the Three Musketeers lives and hers as well.
Zing loses her wallet by accident and cannot pay her house rent. Behong accommodates her in his house. Their love slowly grows. Time passes and Zing senses her boyfriend who she left in the city is starting to change his feeling within their relationship. In anger she throws her ring away.
After finding her wallet, Zing hurries to return to Taipei. Just before leaving, Behong gives her a wood flying fish hairpin and returns her ring that she threw away. To choose the hairpin or the ring? That’s a question for Zing…
