The film interweaves four stories from the four comers of Taiwan.

The South: Two homeless women sing their hearts out.

The West: On the polluted West coast, a heart-broken young man wanders along the beach where a nuclear power plant looms.

The North: On a busy yet gloomy street, a prostitute doesn’t know whether she is human or just a ghostly being.

The East: An Atayal boy wants to fly across the ocean and run away with his little sister to a new life.

A one-year journey; A one-hour film. Everyone will survive and overcome their personal misery-no matter how old they are, what they have been through, where they come from or what kind of situation they are in.

Director Statement

In the past two years, I've devoted myself to two documentaries.

One is Corner's, which is in this year's Taiwan Award: Image Taiwan program

The other is Poles Extremity

The former is private, about what's inside.

The latter is outward looking.

Don't really know what to say, but I can only keep saying.

" Such ghosts are the inevitable creation of fate." --  Zero Chou
