An erotic love triangle finds a young drifter who is beaten by thugs and rescued by an immigrant worker who nurses him back to health. The drifter develops a crush on a waitress and the three young people find love, solace and comfort in each other's companionship in the moody backdrop of modern day Kuala Lumpur. Homeless on the streets of Kuala Lumpur, Hsiao Kang is robbed, beaten and left for dead; he is found and nursed by Rawang, an immigrant worker, who lives in the shell of a modernist building abandoned during construction. Rawang's feelings for his patient may or may not be sexual, but there's definitely something like lust in the eyes of Chyi, a waitress in a run-down old coffee shop, when they light upon the recovering Hsiao Kang. And so a triangle forms as a blanket of noxious fog settles on the city and everyone has trouble breathing. Simultaneously erotic and comical, the film underpins Tsai's deadpan allegory with hints of social realism. Directed by internationally acclaimed and multi-award winner director Tsai Ming-Liang (The Wayward Cloud, Vive L'amour), starring Norman Atun, Norman Bin Atun, Shiang-chyi Chen. I Don't Want to Sleep Alone was one of seven films commissioned for the Weiner Mozart New Crowned Hope Festival, Vienna 2006.
