Following the works K24 and Q&A, talented storyteller TSAI Pao-chang presents the epic The Book of Fate Trilogy One: The Lost Wings. Forced into the sex trade as a stowaway, the heroine struggles with yearnings for her mother and increasing illusions in her mind before discovering her unusual powers. Seeking to recreate the realms of heaven, earth, and the underworld, this production employs a nonlinear narrative to impart the journey of a hero's return, addressing issues of discrimination against differences in religion, race, class, or sexual orientation.
