SYNOPSIS


This is a journey in which the creator of this documentary tries to find the origin for his creation. While driving on the freeway to Puzi, Chiayi County, WU Yao-tung and Tom continue a conversation left unfinished two decades ago. The dialogue falters; clearly they live in two different worlds. After traversing this journey for 20 years, the dark spectre entangled within the depths of the mind is never driven away.

Ini adalah kisah perjalanan dari pembuat dokumenter ini yang berusaha mencari asal dari karya-karyanya. Sambil mengemudi di jalan besar menuju Puzi, Chiayi County, WU Yao-tung dan Tom melanjutkan pembicaraan mereka yang tidak selesai dua decade yang lalu. Percakapan itu pun berhenti; jelas-jelas mereka hidup di dua dunia yang berbeda. Setelah melintasi perjalanan ini selama dua puluh tahun, bayangan gelap yang menjerat pikiran terdalam ternyata tidak pernah pergi.
