Synopsis

Two lonely men discover what they think is a life-changing windfall. Manuel and Dado are a pair of Filipino migrant workers struggling to earn a living at a bicycle factory in Taiwan. Manuel wants to win the heart of a beautiful woman, while Dado just wants to make enough money to go back to his wife and kids. One Sunday after attending church, the men find a beautiful red leather couch that would be theirs if they can carry it away. Getting their new piece of furniture back to their dormitory before curfew leads to a series of unexpected adventures.

This debut feature of Taiwan-based Malaysian director Wi Ding Ho won him the Best New Director Award at the 47th Golden Horse Awards. The digital screening copy of the film is made possible using the 35mm film elements preserved by the Asian Film Archive and digitised by the Korean Film Archive as part of the Asia Film Digitisation Project in 2018.
