Taiwanese businessman Sheng, who has been working in China for years, returns to Taiwan when his youngest daughter Lian dies in a scuba diving incident. Upon arrival, he is faced with another complication — the police are convinced that Shin, Sheng’s estranged daughter from a previous marriage, is a suspect in her half-sister’s death.
Having already tragically lost one daughter, Sheng refuses to let this case ruin his other daughter’s life. Between Lian’s mother who is determined to catch the murderer, Lian’s swim team captain who was the last to see Lian alive, and Shin, who is unwilling to divulge what she knows, Sheng is not sure who or what to believe. Will this father have another chance of redeeming his role as a father or end up losing both daughters?
Chen Yu-jie’s impressive feature debut showcases extraordinary performances from veteran Taiwanese actor Li Tien-chu and rising star Phoebe Lin. Lost Daughter is a compelling family drama with the chills of a gripping thriller.
Chen Yu-jie has won multiple government sponsorship awards in both feature and short film screenwriting. Lost Daughter, which won the 7th Film Taipei Screenplay Awards, is his first feature film.
