After the sun goes down, the lights come on. Don’t assume that everything is quiet and still inside the exhibition galleries at the National Palace Museum!

The plot of this film involves three characters come to life — a child pillow, a jade duck, and a pi-hsieh evil-averting animal. These three friends often romp around playing together. However, one night during their revelry, they lost one of the insects perched on the famous jadeite cabbage on exhibit, leading them on a chase of the insect around the premises. How does it end? Just wait and see!
