Taipei Exchanges (第36個故事) directed by first time director Hsiao Ya-chuan (蕭雅全) brings us a wonderful movie set in Taipei that explores the theme of the value of things. In a city where capitalism and money dominates daily life the movie imagines an alternative of barter, storytelling and dreaming. The story begins with Doris (Kwai Lun Mei ) who opens a cafe with her sister Josie. In the beginning Doris is business minded, while Josie is more idealistic. However the process of trading things not for their monetary value but for their meaning slowly transforms Doris.
