To make ends meet, Wen Guang is coerced by his younger brother into looking for a job to share his burden on meeting their monthly expenses. However, sparked by a childhood inspiration, Wen Guang sets out on a journey to collect specific glasswares which eventually jeopardises his relationship with his younger brother and both their jobs. Throughout the film, we see Wen Guang searching for a job, his daily routines and his secret passion as he searches for the final glass that will bring him a simple, pure, hard earned, fleeting moment of joy.
