Chen Shing-chyi, a character from Tsai Ming-liang's films rather than an actress, in Chienn Hsiang's work plays a 45-year old seamstress from Kaohsiung trying to revive her fading femininity. Everything goes wrong in Ling's life – she suffers from symptoms of premature menopause and lack of dialogue with her adolescent daughter. The door lock breaks down, the husband on a job in Shanghai remains silent, and the sewing machine stops working. As she visits her mother-in-law in a hospital, Ling observes a man recovering from an eye surgery. She starts to look after him secretly, to tend and touch him, finding something more than just relief in the contact with another body.
