“The refugee camps will be demolished next month. Have you ever been there?”

The film title “Chin-Liu-Tao”(金六刀)suggests “somewhere unknown in Indochina.” Three dreams appeared in foreign places, unveiling the unknown past of two Indochinese refugee camps (1977~1988) in the Taiwan Strait.

In the dreams, people with umbrellas had all left, broken umbrellas were abandoned in the wilds, and the rain was about to stop. After decades of being unknown and deserted, the broken umbrellas were taken away by the northeast monsoon winds in the Pacific Ocean.
