After reading my grandfather’s autobiography, I started to trace back his life with my father. We knew that this would be a trip without answers. What we can see now is not what occurred a century ago; the past has been set as time passed. We could not unveil the past through the trip, but we found previously unknown stories, those not written in the autobiography.

自從閱讀完祖父的自傳,我邀請父親一同踏上尋根之旅。我們知道這會是一個沒有答案的旅程,現在我們能追溯到的,是事物經過一個世紀的洗滌後沉澱再呈現的面貌,而不是百年前的過去。雖然故地面目全非,卻不算是一無所獲,重要的是那些從前不知道的故事,那些沒有記載在祖父自傳上的種種。
