Location: SIFF Cinema Uptown
Five Taiwanese teenagers, faced with sweeping and untested educational reforms in 1996, revealed their dreams, and then revisited again in 2006. Now, another decade later, we find out if indeed they were able to chase their dreams.
Over the 20 years their lives are documented, the five stories slowly unfurl before our eyes like precious scrolls. Much like watching ourselves grow, one discovers when going back suddenly to the age of fifteen that life was full of choices, and every step taken was a form of energy. Five true stories. Together again, giving us the chance to see ourselves through them.
