When the filmmaker told his aunt that he found his grandmother’s painting in a Chinese restaurant in America, his aunt burst into tears. Wandering through Cold War constructions, Taiwan-US relations, generations of diaspora, family romances, and ghost stories, this film transforms personal and collective familial memories into a reworking of The Flying Dutchman, wherein they are doomed to sail the oceans forevermore.
