Beautiful Journey depicts a person who is attracted by the outside world and starts to explore the most precious things. When we were young, we were always attracted by the diversity of the world. We left home pursued many things in our whole life, such as success, money, wonderful travel and so on. However, we often ignore that the most important and ordinary thing is to accompany our family. After exploring the bizarre and noisy world, we will find that sometimes the simplest of family affection is also the most valuable.
