A Journey of 35
“Life is like a monopoly game. The fun part lies within journeying through all the challenges.”
Five Taiwanese teenagers, faced with sweeping and untested educational reforms in 1996, revealed their dreams, growth, and changes in life in this documentary produced over 20 years.
From the age of 15 to 35 as their lives are documented, the five stories slowly unfurl like precious scrolls. Much like watching ourselves grow, one discovers when going back suddenly to the age of fifteen that life was full of choices, and every step taken was a form of energy. Five true life stories. Together again, giving us the chance to see ourselves through them.
