In the newest film from Tsai Ming-liang, a single father makes his meager living holding up an advertising placard on a traffic island in the middle of a busy highway. His children wait out their days in supermarkets before they eat with their father and go to sleep in an abandoned building. As the father starts to come apart, a woman in the supermarket takes the children under wing. There are real stray dogs to be fed in Tsai's everyday apocalypse, but the title also refers to it's principal characters, living the cruelest of existences on the ragged edges of the modern world.
