In today’s society, there is no account of how much the world of gold is broken and turned into gold for the sake of self-interest, pride and desire for money.
Man plants a tree not for himself but for the shelter of many pedestrians. Just like a man living a childless life takes an orphan child to save his family. In the cycle of time, the wheels change and two twins come to the family of that childless man. The twins go on a wild road for money and love. But that orphan has changed the whole family. In the end, everyone realized their mistakes and returned to the family with laugh but lost the man.
