Synopsis

Escaping from the midlands of southern Taiwan, a pregnant Thai migrant enlists the help of a fellow Indonesian runaway to locate the father of her child – who has disappeared in the mountains. As they wait for their contact at a deserted petrol station, their plans are abandoned when a run-in with the police forces them to flee abruptly. As night falls, a mist descends - obscuring their paths and blurring the lines of their reality.

Director’s Statement

The vastness of the Central Mountain Range stretches law enforcement thin and promises shelter for fleeing migrants. They roam undocumented and invisible until their eventual arrest. Risking further exploitation and exposure to unwarranted acts of police brutality, the land is swollen with men and women clinging on to the edges of life, but living ghosts linger and only the mountains remain.
