Summary
Hsiao Kang is the only son in an uncommunicative family. When his father dies, he and his mother participate in Buddhist mourning rituals together, but otherwise cope with their profound grief separately and alone, crossing paths only out of routine obligation. Meanwhile, Hsiao Kang returns to his job as a watch vendor on the streets of Taipei. One afternoon, a young woman insists on buying a dual-time watch off his wrist for her trip to Paris, and he eventually relents, despite his superstitious belief that it will bring bad luck to them both. His feelings for the watch, tied to his anguish over his absent father and perhaps a hint of longing for its new owner, quietly compels him to reset every clock in the city to Paris time. Inevitably, despite the seemingly fated, intersecting lives of these three lonely and desperate people, the remedy for their emotional void seems indefinably out of reach. The film itself is poetic, generously compassionate, and achingly bittersweet.

    6| 520-04 a| 父親死後, 小康變得怕黑, 半夜反鎖房門, 尿急也不敢出來小便, 老覺得父親的鬼魂在屋裡走動一天, 他在台北車站外的天橋賣手錶, 來了一位隔天就要出國旅遊的湘琪, 看上他手上帶著的一隻舊款手錶, 求他割愛. 湘琪卻不信這一套, 好說歹說, 他才脫下錶給她, 並建議她一下飛機, 就要在地上翻個斛斗, 以驅除霉運. 湘琪走後, 小康莫名的想念起她, 卻對她一無所知, 只知道她去了遙遠的巴黎. 他心血來潮, 在那封閉幽暗, 佈滿死亡氣息又輾轉難眠的房間裡, 撥了通電話問電信局巴黎的時間, 原來台北比巴黎快了七個鐘頭, 於是他逐隻將所賣的手錶指針往後轉, 往後轉, 往後轉.
