The reality of Taiwanese society between 1994 and 1996 is reflected through the collision of values between the two main characters: the courageous journalist Su Wan-chen who has a strong sense of justice, and the astute heir of a prestigious family, Chen Ching-tang.

The entry of Su Wan-chen in Chen Ching-tang’s life, like the twilight shining in the Arctic winter solstice, which made him started to gain the sense of justice; while to Su Wan-chen, Chen Ching-tang’s appearance, like the shadow under the sunlight, made her to realize that truth and justice cannot always be achieved through idealist ways.
