3 AM, Taipei. The traffic of a 24/7-society pulses through the metropolis. Bordered by a multi-lane street lies the night eatery Little Plates with Rice. Here Mr. Kuo and his wife Mrs. Lin cook for the city’s sleepless. They work at night and sleep through the day. Their eatery is a place of refuge, a warm bowl of rice. For the taxi drivers, the shop owners. For families and young lovers. For the street dog awaiting his owner’s return. One morning, riding back from the market, Mr. Kuo takes a different exit on the highway and journeys to the sea… Closing Time is an extraordinary cinematic experience that relies on colors, sensations, animals, typhoons and a dark lilac sky. An attempt at capturing time, an exercise in seeing.
