With the attempt to make sense of the past and to make peace with himself, he embarks on a journey that takes him to the people he once know, discovering along the way the truth of what exactly happened to his best friend Chen.

After graduating from Columbia University with a master degree in film, Wan returned to Taiwan and directed the segment The Taste of Apples in The Sandwich Man (1983). As one of the representative figures of the New Taiwanese Cinema Movement, his “Taiwan Trilogy” was his way of using film as a medium to criticize the history and society of modern Taiwan. In recent years, he turned his interest in TV productions that include Dana Sakura: Wushe Incident (2003) and The War of Betrayal 1895 (2007).
