Chou Heng-yi runs an 80-year-old wagashi shop. He gave up a career as an entrepreneur to inherit the shop from his father and uncle. Managing an old shop amid shifting market trends is always an uphill business. Additionally, Chou has to face the choice of whether to work with an aging staff or recruit more employees.
