Taiwan / 2012 / 38 mins
Lin Jin-xian was bullied in school for not being able to speak fluent Mandarin. Then he developed a strong affection for the literature of the Taiwanese and later became a language teacher. His vast knowledge of local history and literature offers him no money or fame. Instead, he writes poems for enjoyment and lives a simple life. Naturally, he is not understood by many; but this is the life he is most comfortable with.
