Sid, the rebellious son of Kwan, a savage Hong Kong triad boss, escapes to Taiwan upon enraging his father's adversary, a powerful underground business leader. Hiding out in the mountains, Sid encounters a group of Zen drummers. Their mesmerizing art, rigorous training, and austere way of life pique the hostile urban young man's interest and he asks to join the group. Although Sid despises his father, he is turning out to be a younger version of him: wild and defiant. Immersion in the world of the Zen drummers gradually converts him into a focused young man. Sid's independence from the triad life and his father is profoundly challenged, however, when a twist of fate forces him to choose between loyalty to his family and his new found faith in himself--Container

Tai yang zhao chang sheng qi The sun also rises ( Visual )
6 editions published in 2007 in Chinese and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Composed as a quartet of spellbinding stories, the film begins with a pastoral idyll about the magical and moonstruck existence of a young widow and her son. A pair of embroidered shoes sends the mother into a flight of fancy and delirium; but years later; a trip to her island hideaway reveals something of her past ... The second story, both hilarious and poignant, is set in a college campus at the dawn of the Cultural Revolution. It focuses on the desires between two Indonesian Chinese returnees and a voluptuous female doctor. A scandal revolving a 'bum-pinching molester' paradoxically binds and severs their ties. The third story, the protagonist of the previous story is sent down to the village where the mad widow and her now grown-up son live. A riveting tale unfolds, about male egos and female bellies, and how caressing velvet can save or ruin lives. The last story journeys back in time to the windswept Gobi Desert, home of nomadic Uyghur."--Container
