Synopsis

At the ruins, in the afternoon
The conversation between a dying man and his most beloved person

Director’s Statement

All my works came about like accidents 
Some asked what made me the kind of director I am 
Honestly, I have no idea
When asked what else I am going to do next
I have no answer to that either
The publisher in Taiwan invited me to publish a book about the movie Stray Dogs
To put in more content 
I invited Lee for a talk 
He usually doesn’t talk much
After living together for twenty years
I really wanted to know what’s going on in his mind
Still, it turned out that 
I did most of the talking that afternoon
But if it weren’t for him
I wouldn’t be here, doing what I do
There wouldn’t be any movies
How this recording turned out to be a movie is also purely accidental
