A beautifully photographed coming of age road movie, Island Etude is the story of a handsome young, hearing-impaired man, who before graduating from college, decides to carry his guitar on his back and ride a bike along the Taiwanese coastline, embarking on a seven-day round-island trip. Confronting a myriad of challenges and unknown risks, he rides day and night through tropical sun and driving rainstorms, experiencing the diverse cultures of Taiwan. Along the way he makes new friends, falls in love, and pays a surprise visit to his grandparent's village, where he rediscovers his roots. Mixing documentary with dramatic moments and memories, Island Etude celebrates life, love and the coming of age with humor, sadness and hope.
