Taipei Story

Taipei Story ★★★★

Displacement. Disassociation. Disillusionment.

The product of societal change and inner turmoil. Fleeting nostalgic ties impeding personal growth. Loyalty to customs no longer viable in a modern landscape. Being tethered to various relationships. Desperately attempting to navigate a world that refuses to stay still or empathize.

People who've lost their passions, ambitions, motivations, dreams; others stubbornly holding onto past pleasures and accolades. Alive but not living. Simply moving with the tide of the 20th century or being swallowed up in its wake. Each with their own vices; their own means of "escape" from the crushing reality that 2nd chances don't erase what came before it.
