Synopsis

This is a story that introduces the life of a wonderful dancer, friend and teacher: Lo Man-fei. In Taiwan, several young choreographers have shown the potential needed to achieve worldwide fame, and these achievements are partly due to the guidance and encouragement given by Man-fei. When she became severely ill, she said. ‘If that day ever comes, I won’t say goodbye to anybody. Just act as if I was sleeping in the adjacent room.’

Director

CHEN Hyin-gen was born in 1959 and started working in film in 1983.
