Based on a short story of the same name written in the 1950s by the Taiwanese intellectual and democracy activist Bo Yang, Dragon Eye Congee tells the story of a second-generation Taiwanese American, Shaun Tam, who, since childhood, has repeatedly dreamt about the same woman in the same scenes, complete with a haunting melody and the fragrant smell of rice congee with dried longan.
He is totally mystified about the significance of the dream until he comes to Taiwan for the first time on a business trip and stumbles upon an old house and a woman played by Fann Wong, resembling those in his dreams. Eventually, he realizes that the woman was his lover in a previous lifetime in Taiwan.
Produced by veteran Taiwanese director Lee Hsing of Lee's Production Ltd (李行工作室有限公司), he came out of retirement to produce his first film in 20 years (since 1984), funding NT$2 million. The director of the film is Allen Chang Kuo-Fu, the winner of the Golden Horse Award Best Short Film in 2000.
