    - - A devastating earthquake hit Taiwan on September 21, 1999. Based on the written correspondence between the director and his friend, this film illustrates the sorrow of families who lost loved ones in the disaster, and the relationship between the director and his aging father, who now lives in an institution for the elderly. Death and separation, despair, and the desire to live: the film questions the meaning of life. This film won the YIDFF 2003 International Competition Runner-up Prize.
