In this work, Tsai looks back on her daily work as a science teacher in an elementary school. Disparate background ambiences, shots from nature, her daily environments and school settings intertwine. She highlights the disparity between children’s happiness, their individuality and organized uniformity that adults expect them to accomplish. She questions the essence of education.
