    • Synopsis
    • Kai's girlfriend has just left for Paris. Broken-hearted and stuck in Taipei, Kai has convinced himself that he'll never find happiness again unless he leaves too.
      When Brother Wei, a kindly neighbourhood gangster, offers to help Kai get to Paris in exchange for making a delivery, he immediately agrees. Unfortunately, every­thing falls apart on the night Kai is set to leave - there are several others after the delivery, in­cluding a wannabe gangster who kid­naps his best friend Gao, and an unstable police detective with romantic issues. Kai's world appears to be on the edge of collapse when he bumps into Susie, the plucky girl who works at the bookstore he frequents. Soon Kai and Susie are running across the city trying to rescue Gao in time while gradually falling for each other.
      Through their emerging romance, as well as other intersecting love stories, Taipei begins to reveal an unexpected beauty. By the morning, Kai finally sees that there is no need to go to Paris after all. He's already there.
