何处是归处?是爸妈还在的故乡?还是安身立命的地方?又或是即将迈向的远方?四部来自中、港、台的剧情短片,述说着主角们过去、现在或即将到来的离散人生。

Where is home? Is it our parents’ hometown that still exists? Is it a place to settle down? Or is it a faraway destination? Four short feature films from China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan tell of the protagonists’ past, present, or upcoming scattered lives.
