Story Unbridled


Jie has again fallen into an awkward dream where he discovers people’s obsessions. He is here for Rachel though, a girl who appears in his dreams. Although Jie has met her in different dreams, the two have never had an actual conversation. However, this special occasion at the tavern gets them together again and coincidentally animates the gloomy tavern with a carnival-like dancing blast that liberates the minds of the depressed crowd.

Information for the Audience: 
When people see me as an actor in this film, they often think this is a story of me. It is not true though. The story is about us, especially the people live in Taiwan.
Dream, passion for life, and the reality we live in, when we grow older, these things seem to contradict each other more, and our life become awkward. Aiming for perfection makes us even afraid more of failure. What if we accept the environs we are in and embrace all possibilities? Is this a move with courage? This is a film about how we learn to unbridle ourselves and gain the courage again.
