Director/Writer, Singing Chen brings us a story of interwoven lives in God Man Dog. Ching, a depressed hand model, tries to release herself from the pain of losing a newborn baby, but neither religious belief nor random affairs can help her. Her husband is an architect, deeply involved in the power/money games of the real eastate business. An Aboriginal couple, Biung and Mei, toil to live a poor life, transporting top grade peaches between a remote tribe in Taidong and Taipei city every day. Yet they find themselves valued less than even the peaches. One legged Yellow Bull drives a truck, filled with deserted god statues of various sizes, roaming around to pick up and shelter more. A homeless boy accompanies him, collecting amulets to earn blessings. Then there’s a fatal car accident caused by a stray dog. The lives of the three groups of characters converge and are changed as a result.
