Director Hsiao-Ming Hsu Composer Chyl Ching Cast Vicky Wei, King Jieh-Wen, Ching-Ju Chang
Edition 1995
120' - 1995 - Drama
Lin-Lang is released from prison; she has served a sentence of more than ten years for her involvement in urban terrorism. She starts looking up old friends... and finds that much has changed while she has been locked up. The radicals she once knew have turned in to middle-class home owners and entrepreneurs, and the political opposition has been assimilated into mainstream politics - at the cost of its radical edge. Shocked she searches her old friend: her former lover Wang Rong. Meanwhile, in the city of Taipei, an ordinary family is beginning another ordinary day. The father, Wang Rong, owns a small coffee-shop; he and his wife have a one-year-old son.
