"A clown's red nose, shining through darkness and pain, exists to put a smile on everyone's face."


Due to her fear of death in hospitals, Hsiao Han, a 17-year-old highschooler, misses the chance to say goodbye to her little sister.

Her guilt prompts her to wander around in the hospital corridors, until she meets a clown doctor with a red nose. After that, Hsiao Han seems to find a way to make amends -- she wants to become a clown doctor and bring laughter to more ailing children.

However, she is overwhelmed by all the death and parting in the hospital, and stressed from the process of becoming a clown doctor. Can Hsiao Han successfully complete her training?
