Zhou Xiaoli was born in a big city Donggang and lived with her parents in a little room. The only happiness for her was the visit on a little island where she met a sparky boy. The boy gave her a Cinnamon roll made by his mom. In that moment, she tasted the happiness and remembered it. 
When she grew up, she ran away from Donggang to Xizhou, became a dance teacher and encountered her husband Ren Dong. She became a housewife after marriage, but it did not lead her to happiness. Later, she met Li Xiaozhou on Happy Island… 
In the beautiful nature, Li and Zhou cured each other by food, and overcame the difficulty. This film integrates taste with space, exploring the meanings of ‘happy’ and ‘nestled’ through a self-improvement experience of a woman.
