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
