The Tao has lived on the Island for more than 800 years. There are only 3,000 Tao people left. How are the Tao tear apart between their traditional way of living and the demands of modern life? What will the world miss if the Tao disappears? Listen to CRTVs interview (Mandarin) with the maker of this film, Heather Tsui.
