When I was a little girl

Grandma told me

The most interesting story I've ever heard

Every night

The Guia Lighthouse turns and turns

Illuminating the night skies of Macao

But there's a secret no one knows about

At some point the lighthouse

will stop turning for a very brief moment

and shine its light beam towards the post

the Northern Jetty "Waiting is an awful desert"

When that happens

The treasure hidden underneath

the post will be uncovered

and whoever is brave enough

to row a boat out there

will get the treasure

Really? Have you ever gone out there, Grandma?

What's the treasure?

Tell me! What's the treasure?

Which means...

If you get the treasure,

you won't be afraid of anything

How about my dad?

Has he gone out there?

I've heard of that story long ago

My cousin said he's been out there

He went by himself? That's so brave

Lucky him. I wish I could have the treasure

That's no big deal

Even my grandma's been out there


I want to go out there

You think Dad will go with me?

Your dad is learning to do business

like everyone else, so he has no time

Besides, he's not brave at all

Grandma loved me very much

She knew I loved milk, so every day after school

She would heat up some milk for me

Here, have some milk

She practically raised me

No one knew me like she did

There's some coins on the table

Go get yourself some game cards


Hello, Dad

I want to go see something, can you go with me?

You know how busy I am, honey.

I don't have the time

But Grandma said...

Hello? I'm busy now, let's talk later, okay?

Lok-yi, It's time to set out

Set out?

Tomorrow I'll go with you

Don't you be afraid

I'll be shining this light on you

Mr. Lin?

I'm Lok-yi Peng from National Realty

Any thoughts on the house we saw yesterday?

Didn't I tell you to leave work on time?

You still went over

at the expense of your personal time

Is it worth it? Don't you feel tired?


Of course I'd like things

to go my way if possible

But it's not up to me

Don't you know

Money isn't everything

But without money you can't do anything

I don't want to end up with nothing but a dream

I bet you'd be a great teacher

What you said makes a lot of sense

But my dream is different from yours


You're exaggerating

- Gold digger

- No, I'm not


Greedy for money, you do LOVE money

True. Just a little, not much at all

Are you worried about not finding Mr. Right?

Of course not, you're losing it



Okay... Bye bye

Excuse me nurse, where's the emergency room?

End of the hall turn left

Thank you


it's getting late


If you won't work with us

I'll have to take you back to the precinct


You don't need to ask her anymore

Who in her right mind would take

her granddaughter out to the sea?

The kid's only ten

she doesn't know anything

Your grandmother took you out to the sea?

I see

I'll return to my post, then

Thank you, officer

I thought you were too busy to come visit

I don't know

why you're so obsessed with that story


It's true I don't have the time

to take care of her

I'm not brave enough to take her out to the sea

She said she really wanted to do it

But she was afraid to do it alone

That's human nature

If this goes on

How do you think she'll

turn out when she grows up?

But it's for the two of you

that I'm working so hard

She's my only child

Can you promise not to

take her out to the sea again?

How many people

can remain true to themselves until the very end?


I was the one who wanted to go out there
