Plot Summary:

After being beaten up by some swindlers, silent, mullet-sporting Hsiao-kang (Lee) is carried by a group of Bangladeshi men back to their rundown abode, where the Chinese itinerant is nursed back to health by Rawang (Norman Bin Atun). Soon sharing a musty old mattress with his rescuer, a recovering Hsiao-Kang leaves the house to explore the equally dilapidated surroundings. At a coffee shop in Chinatown, he meets Chyi (Tsai regular Chen Siang-chyi), a waitress who works and lives with her older, female boss (Pearlly Chua).
