Five Taiwanese teenagers, faced with sweeping and untested educational reforms in 1996, revealed their dreams, and then revisited again in 2006. Now, another decade later, we find out if indeed they were able to chase their dreams.

Over the 20 years their lives are documented, the five stories slowly unfurl before our eyes like precious scrolls. Much like watching ourselves grow, one discovers when going back suddenly to the age of fifteen that life was full of choices, and every step taken was a form of energy. Five true stories. Together again, giving us the chance to see ourselves through them.

1996年,台灣教改的開端,捕捉了五位十五歲少年夢想的起點。如今,二十年時光流轉,他們夢想實現了嗎?他們的天空是否真正「海闊」? 跨越二十年的長期記錄,每十年一次的回訪,五個人生故事如同捲軸一般,在眼前慢慢展開。就像看著你我經歷過的成長,驀然回首十五歲的起初,才發現,原來人生充滿選擇,跨出的每一步都是能量。五個真實的故事,與您一同重新看見,那心中的「自己」。
