How does one change the path of life within 100 days? Like, by getting married. Bo Dan, a cold-hearted telecom executive returns to the Matsu Islands for his mother’s burial and knocks into such an unfamiliar tradition: get married in 100 days in order for the parent’s spirit to depart peacefully. Stranded by the typhoon in his long estranged hometown, Bo is forced to rethink his calloused corporate life, and face the rekindled passion for his now-engaged childhood sweetheart. The debut feature by Emmy-winning TV director Henry Chan, 100 DAYS successfully integrates local Taiwanese flavors and deeply felt homecoming revelations to its rom-com finesse.
