Taiwan, 1990s. Vietnamese immigrant wife Van Tue lives in the countryside with her construction worker husband and mother-in-law. With each holding a different view of “home”, restlessness permeates while disasters besiege their lives, forcing Van Tue to flee as she awaits the arrival of the new millennium…

As the island nation enters the modern era, a mysterious Vietnamese woman appears in the city — she’s a private detective embarking on an exploration of Van Tue’s experiences. During this journey of discovery, however, she keeps encountering people and things that seem to have appeared in the past…

This epic of life formed by a two-part story explores the survival of immigrant women in a changing foreign land. Through the entangled fates of “outsiders and locals”, this unique film radiates predicaments on conflicting values, social stratum, history, globalization, and self-identity.
