Synopsis

After the nationalist government retreated to Taiwan in 1949, communities of military families were established around the Taichung Airport in Shuinan, which became the area with the highest concentration of military family communities in Taiwan. The airport was shut down in 2004 for redevelopment and tens of thousands of residents were forced to leave their homes of more than 50 years. As a result, the lives and experiences of military family communities in Taichung now only exist in our collective memories.
