Modern day Taiwan is in many ways a reflection of ancient China, preserving the cultural legacy of one of the oldest existing civilisation.

This film brings to light some of these enduring traditions. It offers insight on how calligraphy, painting and opera have become highly refined art forms over the centuries. It also explores Chinese philosophy and religion, from Confucius to Taoism, as it is still being practised.

In present day Taiwan, as in ancient China, daily life and the afterlife, the past and the present, are all inextricably linked.
