Tapei, never knowing where their next meal is coming from. The father makes a pittance as a walking billboard for luxury apartments, whilst his children rely on free food samples from the local market to survive.
They seek refuge in an abandoned building, where the father becomes fixated with a strange mural painted on the wall. When they meet a lonely woman working in a local grocery store, it turns out she may be able to shed some light on the family's unanswered questions and lead them toward a better life.
A meditative drama which seeks to explore the definition of 'home'. An immensely bittersweet work, Tsai evokes the poetry and tragedy of life lived on the margins of society

This film's poetry goes straight to the heart and solar plexus.
Nigel Andrews, Financial Times
Every shot in this film instantly etches itself on the memory, but you'll have to find a special place for the last three which are some of the most extraordinary ever committed to film. David Jenkins, Little White Lies
