Film description

All my life, I have been building homes for other people and I have nowhere to live myself - says the film's main character. Tsai Ming-Liang takes to socially-involved, interventionist cinema, describing Taiwan's tragic housing policies. Workers who build houses for richer inhabitants, live in provisional flats at construction sites themselves. They cannot afford to buy a house, they can only choose to purchase an illegal, shabby building, which can be demolished by bulldozers at any moment.

This is the social context of a story of a family living at a construction site - a bricklayer, his wife and three children. The constant sense of temporariness and lack of security won't let them rest. Their only dream is calm, their own place with no nightmares.
