Summary "A mother, father and son live together in a small apartment in Taipei but lead very separate lives. The son, Xia-kang (Lee Kang-sheng) drifts through life without a job; the mother is an elevator operator having an affair with a man who pirates pornographic movies; and the father pusures illicit pleasure in the city's gay saunas and is on a mission to stop the leaking water from the apartment upstairs. When the son is stricken with an agonizing pain in his neck and shoulders, seemingly from taking an ill-advised dunking the the polluted Tansui River, the family is driven on a quest to alleviate the son's pain"--Container.
