Zero Chou is a director who has dedicated her entire professional career to depicting LGBT+ relationships. Being the only Taiwanese director who is openly lesbian, her characters are thoroughly contemplated and relatively realistic. Together with her cinematographer partner, she has launched a project called Over the Rainbow with the idea to produce 6 films about the LGBT+ communities of different Asian cities. This film is one of the six. The main characters of the film are linked by the fact that they all have traumatic experiences hidden away in their past. The story focuses on a prosecutor who feels very strong empathy towards the accused, even going so far that intimate love can emerge. In addition to the realistic side, the film is also interspersed with a notional world, a reflection of the inner soul of a person, the manifestation of what is hidden in the darkest corners, expressed by a dance dedicated to death.
