8th August 2009. The flood caused by the devastating typhoon 88 destroyed the village of Jiaxian. Children in Jiaxian Elementary School trained and fought hard to bring the honour back in the tug-of-war games. Their courage inspired the adults whose faith was swept away by the flood. In addition, a group of mothers who came from other countries live here. With the traditional food of their countries and their beautiful singing, they inject a new bout of energy and liveliness into the local community.

2009年8月8日,一场无情的风灾摧残了这个山中小镇─高雄县甲仙乡,这个以芭乐、芋头闻名的观光区,现在放眼望去,只剩下一片死寂…。但甲仙国小的一群孩子,在缺乏拔河鞋和专用拔河道的匮乏环境中,努力为家乡争取最高荣誉,试图唤回被风灾摧折后的信心与勇气。这群单纯的拔河小将,不畏环境艰难的勇气和精神,深深鼓舞了因为环境受创而信心全无的大人们,他们一同奋起,不向逆境屈服。

同时,这里也住着一群长期不受台湾社会重视的新移民妈妈们,被婚姻仲介说服以为来台湾就可以当少奶奶、过着舒适的生活而满心期盼地嫁过来。但现实却不从人愿,有的人要亲自下田负担忙碌的农作;有的人要到工厂亲手包装辛苦栽植的芭乐;有的人甚至要一肩扛起全家的生计…不过为了守护她们的家庭,她们不轻易说苦,也捨不得离开台湾。风灾过后,这群妈妈们透过她们美味的异国菜餚及动人的歌声,为甲仙注入一股全新的活力!

《被遗忘的时光》、《青春啦啦队》导演杨力州花了长达一年以上的时间,在高雄甲仙蹲点拍摄,交出创作生涯中最複杂纠葛的最新作品。
