In September 2016, Jianguo market next to Taichung railway station was relocated due to the railway vialization and urban renewal plan. The largest market relocation in Taiwan's history represented the transformation and decline of Taiwan's economic miracle. More than 700 stalls will enter a new and uncertain future.
In the face of the alternation of new and old buildings, various behaviors, memory and emotional connections in the space, and the shadow of the underlying vitality, will these fields belong to Taiwan's unique market culture and special atmosphere disappear inadvertently?
This documentary delicately captures the life breath of the traditional market, showing the relationship between people, people and land, and people and work. Migration is imperative. People still have their own special way to interpret and tease. A large number of details stack the vivid appearance of small people, and reproduce the unique human flavor of the old market.
