Taipei Story 青梅竹馬 (1985)
A headstrong and financially-secure woman, Chin (played by Chin Tsai), is anxious to move forward in life and escape from the dissatisfaction and pain caused by family troubles, urban alienation, a lack of job security, tumultuous friendships, and a distant past of baseball glory to which her boyfriend, Lung (Hou Hsiao-hsien), so desperately clings. Chin thinks moving to America may be the solution to all her problems, but she has to wait for Lung to resolve some issues. As time goes by, it becomes increasingly clear that their idea of moving to America together is a pipe dream and one that will not fix their emotional suffering.
