The filmmaker lives in a dark and cold stone-paved town, far from her homeland in Taiwan. Leafing through photographs, her grandmother unravels a memory. Meanwhile, the French-speaking son of a Chinese man, who had arrived in France as a coal mine worker one century ago, speaks about his life. This film captures the emotions of wanderers caught between nations and history.
