2049 + Voice of Rebirth

After discovering his grandfather urgently needs money for surgery, temple youth Wei strikes on an enterprising idea to wring the much needed funds from property developers eager to purchase his grandfather’s temple and turn it into housing.

Entering into a not-entirely-honest relationship with Rainy, a girl opposed to community reconstruction, the pair submit the temple for historical landmark status and engage in everything from performing traditional religious ceremonies, to participating in global singing and dancing competitions to enrich the cultural importance of the site.

As their relationship grows over time, they also find themselves torn between family, friendship, and even love.
