In 2008 Taiwan and the Beijing Government began a series of talks in order to reconcile their differences of identity and ownership. Dialogue was the founding stone of a new relationship and in some ways had similarities to the Belfast agreement on the island of Ireland. Strait-talk is a film, a reflection of a warrior’s journey home. Homeland, the place we call home is where our most potent, intimate identity is.
