Rat and his elder gay brother Shanghe live in an old house on the fringe of Taipei City. Rat works at a market vegetable stall and goes out with a mute woman who gets up to all sorts of craziness. Shanghe works for an entertainment company and dances in a gay nightclub. He is attracted to his cousin's boyfriend, Shuo, who is a gigolo. Shuo gets beaten up by his ex-client's brother, Ah Xiang, and his men at the behest of his sister. Ah Xiang, out for revenge because of a scar left by Rat, uses Rat's mute girlfriend to catch him. When alone with Ah Xiang, he attacks and stabs him suddenly with a hooked knife that he keeps around in his sling bag. Back at his home after escaping from Ah Xiang, he remembers the incident when he found his decomposing mother's corpse on the floor of her home. The movie ends with a silhouette of him hugging his mother at the river bank.--Wikipedia

Shu jia zuo ye = A Time in Quchi by Zuoji Zhang( Visual )

4 editions published in 2014 in Chinese and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Following a prologue that invokes the motif of its Chinese title, "Summer Homework," the yarn unfolds via diary entries written by 10-year-old Guan Xiaobao (Yang Liang-yu), nicknamed Bao, recounting what he did during his vacation. Needing some space as they work out the terms of their divorce, Bao's parents bundle him off with his younger sister, Seaweed (Lin Ya-ruo), to stay with their grandfather (Guan Guan, aka Kuan Yun-loong) in Quchi, an outlying rural community not far from Taipei. Grandma passed away a year ago, but Grandpa's loneliness is carefully hidden beneath his jovial air and feigned peevishness. Eccentric is too conventional a term to describe the old codger, who spends hours painting faces on stones, and even orders Bao to greet one of them as a stand-in for Grandma at the dinner table. The symbolic meaning of his handicraft emerges over the course of the film, revealing the old man's romantic soul and Zen wisdom. The first half of the film is punctuated with voiceover excerpts from Bao's holiday assignment, in which he covers up his discontent with fake, upbeat rhetoric. As he befriends local brats Ming-chuan (Hsieh Ming-chuan), Steamed Bun (Wu Bing-jun), and class beauty Bear (Gao Shui-lian) at the village school, he falls in love with his surroundings and the diary entries begin to pour from his heart. Nothing overtly dramatic happens -- the tykes climb trees, catch crickets and rehearse a play -- but the rigorously pared-down script and near-invisible camera capture each child's individuality and myriad moods; what fascinates them becomes just as engrossing to audiences. Here and there, urban-vs.-rural stereotypes are slyly subverted, as when an aboriginal schoolgirl kicks Bao's ass in a beatboxing match. At around the 75-minute mark, unforeseen events occur, including a violent typhoon, forcing Bao to cross the threshold into adulthood. Although "A Time in Quchi" is lighter in tone than Chang's previous works, the fatalistic strain running through those films is also apparent here, turning the story into a meditation on transience. From the implied impact of Grandma's death on Grandpa to the embittered breakup of his parents' marriage, or even the rare glimpse of a peacock's tail, Bao's experiences teach him that everything comes and goes as abruptly as that typhoon. This truth is expressed in a quietly crushing scene when, instead of comforting Bao at a sad moment, Grandpa advises him to "get used to loneliness."--Maggie Lee, variety.com
