The film takes place in a public park in the Taiwanese metropolis Taipei. The open-air theatre of the park with its red benches was the location of the last scene of Tsai Ming-Liang’s 1995 film "Vive l'amour." This marks the starting point of the artist's observations of this urban location, as it begins to rain heavily.
