The Taiwan Oyster – SXSW 2012 Accepted Film
Immediately after the tragic death of a newly arrived Ex-pat, ESL kindergarten teachers Simon and Darin, steal the corpse in order to perform the final rites for the fallen stranger. Their quest for the best burial spot becomes a quixotic odyssey along Taiwan’s picturesque East Coast Highway, in which they experience welcoming households, violent gangsters, personalized demons, and Nikita, their traveling companion. The duty, transport, and dementia fueled by regular substance abuse, ignites an internalization in all three characters as they define their personal feelings regarding mortality, objective, burial rites and the idea of legacy.
