Hsiao Kang is recuperating from an illness in the mountains. Unable to communicate with his late mother who visits and cooks for him, or the female ghost lives next door, his only companion is a lone fish who swims with him in the bathtub. Iconoclastic art house veteran Tsai Ming-Liang, in his debut virtual reality work, integrates the artistry of cinematography with technological dynamism, and creates a dreamlike 3D space in which viewers can thoroughly live a fragment of the characters’ personal journeys, and immerse into their contemplation of life, death and memory.
