Genre: Drama
98 min


Why are you here?

For how long?

The same time you got here!




Auntie Wu!

- Auntie

- Mei-Jung

Are you here for Ching-Mao?

Is he here?

I haven't seen him

Either at the library or dorm

- No lecture today?

- The class just ended

Come visit our home with Ching-Mao during the holiday

- Chi-ming's came back from school

- Chi-ming's back?

I'll be there if he's going

This place is off limits for girls

I'm not going in. Bye!

Good Bye



Don't shut yourself in while others are having fun

I didnt know if you'd any warm clothes in this chilly weather

Have some water

A sweater

It was Chi-Ming's but you two are the same height


Give it to Chi-Ming. I'm fine.

Chi-Ming has another one


I don't need pocket money right now

Keep it

I didn't want you to know this

It's not mine

It's from your mother

She's here again?

In my home

Please return the money to her

I'll never take her money

You're young

Once you're at my age

You'll then understand

No-one is perfect

People makes mistakes

You refuse to see her

And take her money

She is really hurt by all this

Hurt? Her?

She never care about hurting others

Oh, child!


Would you mind doing me a favor?

Next Thursday will be my father's 10th death anniversary

But I have a test that day

- Can you light an incense stick for him?

- I would have done so regardless

You remember everything

Your father would have been so proud

To have a son like you

- No need to send me off

- Thank you

I'll come visit you some other time

- Don't trouble yourself like this

- I know

What a coincidence!

Where are you going?


I saw Auntie and you walking out of the dorm

So I followed you

Let's go to Cafe Astoria

My treat

I'm not going

Then you're buying, how's that?

- I'm really not bluffing

- Wow, really?

There's Chi-Ming

Can I get you something to drink?

- - Okay

- And you?

- Juice


Rarely do I get to meet our top student here

Not interrupting anything, am I?


A new female professor is teaching essay analysis in the Foreign Language department

Have you chosen this course?


Why not?

She lectures solely in English and listening to more English will make your life oversea easier

Who says I'm going oversea?

Then why work so hard?

We don't study just for going oversea


My mother just went to your school

Have you met her?

I just sent her off

I saw your mother crying in my home when I came back yesterday

Go and see her

Chi-Ming, how's the workload at your college?

- How do you find the time?

- I come back for you

But you're ignoring me

What's so great about me?

I'm too busy for this

Ching-Mao, how can you just left me here?

You know the way home

His temper is getting weirder

Thinks he's so great with all the top grades

Think all he wants!

I'm not going out with him even if he were the last living boy in the campus!

Is this seats taken?

- No

- Thank you

Ma, let's not sit here

Come, sit

Come, sit by the window

- Where to?

- Taipei

We're going to the same place then

- I couldn't believe it at first

- Why would I lie to you?

You look so young for a mother of a boy

I married young, turning 30 this year

Must have taken good care of your body. You look 26 or 27

Such a jokester!

What do you do for a living: a merchant or something else?

- Have a small business

- Oh

Ma, why haven't we reached Taipei?

Already you're getting impatient. Told you not to come

Mandarine, sir?

- How much is it?

- 5 bucks for 3

Should be enough

- Have one
