Introduction to the story：
Ken-Tai was dedicated to investigating insects and hoped to become an expert on insects when he was little，however, he gave up his dream because of the objection of his parents. He often thought of "life" and "living". Once he went back to the playground he used to go in his childhood and met a mysterious boy. The boy indicated him to a pipeline，something strange happened. After passing through the pipeline, Ken-Tai entered an another world, Insect Kingdom. Ken-Tai overheard that there was a piece of magical mirror which could change everything. In the journey of finding the mirror, Ken-Tai recalled his childhood memories in the bottom of his heart.
What are the difficulties and challenges faced daily? What is the purpose of living? In the face of the future that cannot be seen in life, where can Kentai go from here? In the end, Kentai took away a gift that could change his life in the Insect Kingdom. What kind of gift is this to allow Kentai to bravely live a life?

The program brings together people and experts (including clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, etc.) who are concerned about the problem of school children's suicide, and those who have tried to be suicidal, and hope to stand by them.
We worked with experts and theater educators to create a forum theater, interact with classmates in a forum theater, let students participate in interactive discussions and explore solutions. People and experts shared the meaning and value of life, to convey the message of rebuilding lives.
