Program Note

The Tag-Along 2 is a sequel to the Taiwanese movie The Tag-Along 1 (2015), directed by Cheng Wei-hao and was nominated as the It Project in BIFAN. The first film was both successful in performance and among critics. The theme is based on the ancient Chinese book,「Classic of Mountains and Seas」and the motive of the film comes from the story of ‘the evil spirit’ which uses human desire or weakness to possess people and make them disappear. It features a Taiwanese urban legend about a red-dressed girl. The result was a success thanks to the performance of the cast. The movie begins with the disappearance of illegal logging immigrants in the mountains waking up a sealed evil spirit by accident. A single mother  and a social worker Li Shu-fen, receives a report of a child being abused and saves a young girl from a suspicious house. Meanwhile, she forces her teenage pregnant daughter to have an abortion, which she desperately refuses and goes missing in the mountains. The search operation, which was conducted on the mountain to find her daughter trapped in the world of demons ends up finding another women named Shen, a pregnant woman who had been previously missing. And as they continue to look for Li Shu-fen’s missing daughter, the hidden identity of the girl in red clothes is revealed... (PARK Sung-ho)
