In an autographic manner, the film starts with Lee’s memory of having his first art figure drawing class in his middle school in the 90s, his art teacher brought out a real human skull from the storeroom, which was excavated together with two Japanese military swords when the school was renovated during the 80s. It reveals a purged history of the Japanese occupation, alluding to the Nanshitou Incident.
