Film description

The teenage Kai-chiang suffers from a rare disorder ever since he was born - the level of ammonium in his body is so high that it may cause serious injury or death. The boy has to take medication which has an inconvenient side-effect: it leaves the unpleasant smell of ammonium. Kai-chiang can't accept his disease and he cannot cope with being rejected by his peers. He wants to forget the disease and live as a normal child. The film touches on the issue of disease and its place in the mode of society's thinking. Kai-chiang's internal fight causes a conflict between him and his mother - an activist struggling for a dignified life for sick people.

It is hard to recognise Tsai or Lee's style here - this is a simple, even educational film, made for a social campaign.
