Synopsis : As we grow older, our view on love also undergoes tremendous changes. My personal feeling is that love at my age can develop quickly and also end instantly, without dramatic changes in feelings caused by words or looks from the other person that we experience during adolescence. Yu Sheng, the main character of the film, tries to explore courage and love through the hands that stretch out and retract again and again. His experience is the epitome of first love. Just like the title of the film, the rest of life is long, and we will continue to go further toward the end of the sea (life). But those youthful stories full of regrets, like the stone that sink into the sea, cannot neither be forgotten nor go forward.
