YesAsia Editorial Description

Touch of the Light editor and screenwriter Li Nien Hsiu traces her father's amazing life in the documentary Hebei Taipei, a story that spans 5,000 kilometers and 15 years of filming. The director's father, Old Li, was born in Hebei, China, and lost both his parents at a young age. His father died during the Northern Expedition and his mother committed suicide. To survive, Li joined a temple and became a monk. When the civil war broke out, he picked up arms and joined the Nationalist army. After the Nationalists were defeated, he switched sides and joined the Communist army. To him, being a soldier was not about politics but survival.

During the Korean War, Li was dispatched to the Korean peninsula and got captured near the North-South border. Through UN assistance, he ends up in the Republic of China – in Taiwan. He would never return to his hometown in Mainland China again. In Taiwan, Li marries and forms a family, but lives in fear of his Communist background being discovered. At 60, he separates from his wife and family. Faced with the unbearable sight of his own graying hair, he puts on a wig and women's clothing, and tries to make up for lost years. Where will Li's lifetime of drifting and displacement lead him in the end?
