流浪神狗人

手部模特兒青青,試圖以外遇與信仰忘卻喪子之痛,她逐漸冰冷的婚姻,僅期盼以一場東部旅行起死回生。清貧的原住民夫婦,每日載運一車吃不起的水蜜桃,祈求生活早日步上軌道,與女兒團聚。缺了一條腿的浪人牛角,與無家少年結伴流浪,沿路撿拾被遺棄的神像,希望有天能買條新義肢。當眾人各自為生活尋找出路之際,一場為閃躲流浪狗而發生的車禍,使他們有了交集,卻也改變了命運。

本片拼貼不同族群、階級與宗教元素,以三組人物、多線開展狂想故事,在荒謬衝突裡點出當代社會多重議題。社會價值觀的錯倒,片中隨處可見:受人信仰的神明,在商品化社會降格為求財工具,因無法讓人致富被遺棄路邊。高級水蜜桃在廣告拍攝現場被大量丟棄,卻是窮苦原住民生財工具。角色因社會位置不同,有相異的人生際遇,卻因內心與生活困頓,心靈各自出走流浪,在流轉無常的命運裡,不斷應對,活出不同的生命樣貌。(資料出處:臺灣國家電影中心工具箱)
