Phrases are picked out From Taiwan Jiu Shi Tan (Taiwan Old Tales) by Lin Dongchen first published in 1979 April 15th and films are shot in the location mentioned in the book. In this book, the author depicts Taiwan during the times of Japanese occupation from second hand information. I have never been through those period, hence for me they only exist/non exist in a elusive and ghostly form, but always on my mind.
