Summary
  1950s Taiwan, during the period known as "White Terror," when the anti-Communist campaign swept the island and hysteria reigned. On one autumn afternoon, two young sisters return from school to find their once-happy home ransacked by military police and their parents arrested amidst accusations of being Communist spies. PRINCE OF TEARS follows a quartet of characters - the dashing air force officer father, his beautiful devoted wife, a mysterious scar-faced bureaucrat and a general's glamorous wife. Their lives and loves intertwine and chaos begins to dominate their existence. Friendship, passion, high-minded ideals and dignity are all put on trial in the court room of human desire. ... Premiered at 66th Venice Film Festival 2009. ... Theme song by George Lam.
