Bai Yide is a young man living alone. He works at a bookstore and derives sexual pleasure by stealing and wearing women’s underwear. One day, he receives a DVD in which his activities have been recorded and he becomes anxious.

Our take

Three alluring, disparate characters shape this elliptical story, which faces the many complexities of sexuality amongst alienated youth in contemporary Taiwan. Director Chu Hsien-che’s approach is considerate and acutely stylized in its brave confrontation of challenging subject matter.
