Synopsis:
At the age of 79, Chen set up his own troupe, which soon earned recognition all over the world. This film also shows the struggle in preserving a piece of culture/art in the modern world.

一只看似樸實的紅盒子,裡頭裝著掌中戲大師李天祿長子,也是國寶級藝師陳錫煌師傅承襲布袋戲表演功夫的來源、掌上功夫的祕密。李天祿因入贅陳家,長子按規定得姓陳。父親巨人般的身影、異姓父子的特殊關係,為兩人種下難解心結。在每次演出前,陳錫煌總會向紅盒子裏的戲神田都元帥,祈求表演順利,但戲迷其實早就散了,戲台也被其他娛樂所取代…。
