Director Wei Te-sheng has been regarded as one a cultural icon in contemporary Taiwan since his hit movie Cape No. 7 (海角七號) was released in 2008. In the film, an unusual group of people in a village on the coast of Taiwan form a band to perform at a beach concert, while the lead singer searches for the intended recipient of seven lost love letters.
