Yi yi (A one and a two)

Threat advisory: Under evaluation

Movie propaganda

Each member of a family in Taipei asks hard questions about life's meaning as they live through everyday quandaries.

NJ (Nien-Jen Wu) is morose; his brother owes him money, his mother is in a coma, his wife suffers a spiritual crisis when she finds her life a blank, his business partners make bad decisions against his advice and he reconnects with his first love 30 years after he dropped her. His teenage daughter Ting-Ting (Kelly Lee) watches emotions roil in their neighbours' flat and is experiencing the first stirrings of love. His son Yang-Yang (Jonathan Chang), 8, laconic like his dad, pursues truth with the help of a camera.

"Why is the world so different from what we think it is?" asks Ting-Ting.
