Synopsis It’s the last week of 1999. Under the rain, Taiwan faces the new millennium and The Metamorphosis: in the streets, people are behaving like cockroaches. Due to a clumsy plumber, a hole is made o the floor of a drunken grocer whose shop has no customers. The apartment below is then revealed, inhabited by a withdrawn woman-cockroach who hoards toilet paper rolls. The woman lets herself be watched, she even fantasises with the neighbour upstairs, she becomes obsessed and pictures herself as a character in a musical film of the 50’s.
