It is a night of torrential rain, and the roof of the Fun-Ho Grand Theater in Taipei is leaking. The movie showing--King Hu's lush 1966 swordplay classic "Dragon Inn"--Is the theaters last-ever screening. Once a beacon for a city of moviegoers, the theater has become a haven for hustlers, tired old men, lonely employees, and possibly even ghosts.

The ticket taker, the washroom attendant, and the projectionist silently perform their tasks, in this poetic and elegiac exposition on longing, synchronicity, nostalgia, and the death of cinema.
