Synopsis

Hsu Zi Qi is a young woman who lives alone in the city. Lee is the autistic son of Zi Qi’s landlady, who tries to free himself from his protective mother. Feng is a shy young builder, who struggles with the constant breakdowns of his car. Through its interconnecting characters, the film subtly and intimately explores the moments of loneliness and regret that punctuate lives in a metropolitan city and emphasises the importance and necessity of simple human contact.
