SYNOPSIS

THE STORY OF THE STONE tells the story of gay life in the modern city of Taipei in Taiwan. The story has been adapted from the classical novel of the same name, adapting the characters and events from the original story to life at the Red House in Taipei’s Ximending area.

 

The film avoids focusing on moral issues and in making any judgments. It displays an honest and natural depiction. It depicts gay life in Taipei and delves into the chaos and beauty of life in Taipei, as well as exploring despair, reincarnation and hope.
