Three lost souls are brought together by odd happenstance in this elegant reflection on modern life, the award-winning debut from Hou Hsiao-hsien disciple and NYU graduate Huang Xi. A young woman keeps a menagerie of parrots in her Taipei apartment; when one escapes, she gets assistance in tracking it down from her landlady’s autistic son and a shy handyman, and a unique bond develops between them. Meanwhile she keeps receiving strange phone calls looking for someone named Johnny. While no clear answers to these simple mysteries surface, the three start to open up to one another, revealing personal stories and hidden emotions. New York Premiere
