DAUGHTERS OF HAMASEN

Hamasen: a strip of land wrested from the ocean, the setting for this touching story of a young girl, as well as home to a way of life that is rapidly disappearing.

Together we follow the story of A-Giok, and a host of other interwoven characters, as the region’s former glory has long since faded, leaving little for her but a tough childhood. Against the backdrop of a changing Taiwan, yet where the past is never truly gone but always lingering in the present, we become witness to the young A-Giok’s dreams and fears, her frailty and her strength. And yet hers is just one story among many, her fate mirrored in the experiences of all the other ‘daughters of Hamasen.’
