KING Shih-Chieh , YANG Kuei-Mei
Jhong wakes up at home to find himself dead. He watches his wife and children deal with his death while they speak their thoughts over breakfast. Shortly after, absurd incidents begin to happen: Jhong’s son is afraid his mother will be charged with manslaughter; the policeman who comes to help is terrified upon seeing Jhong’s spirit; and Jhong’s wife insists on taking her husband’s corpse for a walk by the riverbank. Though his wife cannot hear a word of what Jhong’s spirit is saying, she can still sense his final wish.
