“The Mother of One Recluse” was the work of Chinese film director Yang Shu. She made the film five years ago, and in doing so offended the Chinese government. Since then she has been forced to remain in exile in Hong Kong. Her mother who lives in Sichuan has had a relapse of her stomach cancer from years ago, and needs to undergo an operation imminently. She wishes to see her daughter and grandson, having only known the latter via internet chat. Therefore, Yang Shu takes the opportunity of a film festival event to go with her husband and son to Taiwan to meet her mother, whom they have arranged to meet when the latter is there on a mainland company leisure tour. To ensure this family reunion can take place under the strict control of regulated schedule by the Chinese tour company, the young family checks in to the same hotel, and follows the tour group to the various scenic spots they visit.
