    • Synopsis
    • In Taiwan, a dead body used for medical dissection is called “a silent teacher.” This film tells a story of Mrs Lin-whose body will be dissected the next year, with the coming “students” and the lost family members around her.
      Before the semester starts, the students are asked to visit Mrs Lin’s family, while the bodies, under the knife in class, are no longer cold bodies but friends whom they get to know better, how will the students feel during the class while they imagine need to conquer the inner anxiety and fear when facing the anatomy task?
      When Mrs Lin’s husband and daughter last the tense relationship in lack of Mrs Lin’s connection, the coming students’ visit will improve somewhat between them?
      Whatever the answers might be, Mrs Lin, the “silent teacher” during the semester, will definitely teach the college students and her family more about the meaning of life.
