Return

by HUANG Pang-chuan

This film intertwines two journeys in two different time periods. In the first one, a traveler on the way home picks up tattered memories of the green years along the transcontinental railway from Europe to Asia; While in the other, the life in war flashes back once again through an old family photo. Amid the steady rhythm of the swaying train, the past and the present merge, a long-forgotten memory revealed.
