Taiwanese director Wu Mi-Sen's labyrinthine, amnesiac drama Amour-Legende centers on Oshima, a married man caught in an illicit affair with a young woman named May. They flee Oshima's family in Taipei City and head for Snow Mountain in South America. They journey through rugged and inhospitable terrain and Oshima slips into unconsciousness. He wakes to find Coco, with May nowhere in sight. Together they continue the journey to Snow Mountain in search of May. En route, they hear tales of how the same journey has shattered the illusions of happiness for other couples.
