Director Hui-Chen Huang lives with her mother, but rarely speaks to her. A taoist priestess dealing with transitioning the dead and an inveterate gambler, Anu does not want to talk about what made her leave her husband, about her various girlfriends over time, and about her place in Taiwanese society—a terrain that continues to be profoundly homophobic even as it is the first country in Asia to legalize same sex marriages. “It’s not good to talk about such things”, says Anu in one of the few moments she breaks her silence. A devastating film about the human need for trust, for connection, for intimacy, and, ultimately, love.
