Southland Soldiers

Synopsis

A group of guerrillas retreated from Burma to Taiwan during the Chinese Civil War in 1961. They settled down and lived in virtual seclusion in four villages in the south of Taiwan. Now, fifty years later, excavators are digging uncanny holes on their land for the sake of economic development. To them, the days of forest battles have long gone, but another silent inner war has just begun.
