Director: Cheng Wen-Tang
Language: in Min Nan with English subtitles
About the film: An engrossing character study of a one-time bad cop (Tsai Chen-Nan) who seeks redemption by helping apparently random citizens and taking on an assignment involving the overdose death of a girl. But his zeal and good conscience are confronted by the karma of his past deeds and as the story unfolds, the viewer learns that nothing happens by accident.
Tensions evident in the recent European Union-China virtual summit reflect the increasing skepticism in Europe toward China and the worries over Ukraine and economic ties as well as human rights and environmental issues.
