Without much conviction, Hsiao Kang sells watches in the streets of Taipei. His father passed away a few days before he meets Shianh- Chyi who is about to leave for Paris and wants a double face watch. The only available one, happens to be his own and she is keen to buy it. 
Hsiao Kang lives with his mother who has shut herself away in her flat, waiting for her husband’s reincarnation. To free himself from this oppressive atmosphere, he starts living at Shiang-Chyi’s time, watching Truffaut's 400 Blows. His even more crazy and poetical idea is to set all the clocks and watches from Taipei to Paris time. In Paris, Shiang-Chy is experiencing the same loneliness than Hsiao Kang or his mother in Taipei. She is away from Hsiao Kang, yet she feels close to him when she meets Jean-Pierre Léaud, the actor of 400 Blows, in a cemetery.
