A Touch of Green (Chinese: 一把青) is a 2015 Taiwanese period drama television series produced by Public Television Service, based on the 1971 short story of the same name by Pai Hsien-yung (which was included in his bilingual collection Taipei People). The story follows a group of Republic of China Air Force pilots and their wives during the Chinese Communist Revolution (1945–49) in mainland China and the White Terror period (1949–87) in Taiwan.

A Touch of Green won 6 awards at the 2016 Golden Bell Awards, including Best TV Series, Best Directing (Tsao Jui-yuan), and Best Actor (Wu Kang-jen).


The story takes place from 1945 to 1981, after the Japanese surrender from World War II and the Chinese Civil War. The story focuses on three women, from their days as schoolgirls to their marriages as wives of Republic of China Air Force pilots. They follow their husbands from Nanking to Taiwan in 1949 after the retreat of the Government of the Republic of China (ROC) and Kuomintang (KMT). The story emphasizes the daily lives of the families who stayed at the military dependents' village, experiencing the pain of leaving their home and separations from friends/family. Their shared experience brings the military families together in support of one another. Through their love and bond, they survive hardships. The resulting story is motivational and touching.[2]
