電影簡介

沒有人能看見真相的全貌,因為我們都是其中散裂的碎片。

九年前,雷雨滂沱的黑夜,報社菜鳥小齊開車在山區拋錨,意外目睹一場肇事逃逸的車禍。支離破碎的現場,男性駕駛當場死亡,副駕駛座的女性徐愛婷在送醫後陷入昏迷,慌亂之間,小齊拍到的肇事車牌模糊難辨,不足以為證,車禍的真相也跟著石沈大海。

事隔多年,三十出頭的小齊擔任社會線新聞召集人,意氣風發,凡事探究真相和富有衝勁的個性使他一路平步青雲,直到某次採訪立委事故現場,小齊急著趕回報社處理第一手資料,卻發生車禍意外。小齊將車送到修車廠,好友阿吉檢驗後判斷小齊買到的可能是還魂車。詫異之餘,小齊向二手車商求證未果,轉向交通事故組的舊識王組長進一步調查,不但證實所買的確實是事故車,最令他意外發現當年報案人竟然是自己的名字,九年前潮溼的記憶再度向小齊湧來。

同時,報社新的人事命令下來,小齊處理的立委事故報導有誤遭告,事業一時跌入谷底。小齊決定改追查九年前那場車禍懸案,運用多年社會線的人脈,找上刑警德哥,才知道當年車禍的生還者徐愛婷早從醫院消失,行蹤成謎,小齊決意找出徐愛婷的下落,探究車禍的真相。

社會線背景的小齊發揮職業能力,從查出愛婷的老家為起點,最後終於在一處茶庄,打聽到徐愛婷的下落,小齊基於內心對九年前自己無能為力的虧欠感,決定為徐愛婷平反,絲毫沒有察覺背後一雙眼睛跟著他追查的軌跡,悄悄擄走徐愛婷,顯然,車禍的目擊者,不只小齊一個人。

一連串事件不斷發生,小齊所知的真相樣貌一次次被徹底顛覆,彷彿像是當年浸著雷雨的那些碎片又回到原點,而從這場車禍留下來的人,仍帶著殘缺、罪惡和秘密回憶繼續過著各自的人生…

Who Killed Cock Robin

No one can see the entire picture of a truth, because we are but fragmented pieces.
Nine years ago, journalist Hsiao-chi witnessed a hit-and-run crash on a mountain road when his vehicle broke down. In that accident which happened on a stormy night, the male driver was instantly killed, and the female passenger Hsu Ai-ting fell into a coma. In a panic, Hsiao-chi took photos of the hit-and-run vehicle registration plate. However, the pictures were too blurry to be used as evidence, and therefore facts of the accident were never established.

Years later, the 30-plus Hsiao-chi has become a society news coordinator. Because he’s high-spirited, likes to investigate the truth and full of energy, he rose rapidly in his career, until the day he had a traffic accident after investigating a legislator’s accident site, and is on his way back to the newspaper agency in a hurry to put together first-hand information. Hsiao-chi takes his car to a repair shop. His good friend A-chi finds that Hsiao-chi’s car might be a rebuilt car. Surprised, Hsiao-chi asks the second-hand car dealer, but can’t get an answer. He then turns to Director Wang, an old friend, from the traffic accident team. He finds out that his car was indeed involved in a car accident. The one thing surprises him the most is that he was the person who reported the accident. The memory from nine years ago rushes back to Hsiao-chi.

At the same time, the newspaper’s report states that the legislator’s accident report handled by Hsiao-chi was incorrect, and he’s been sued. As a result, his suddenly hits rock bottom. Hsiao-chi then decides to investigate the unsolved car accident case from nine years ago. He makes use of his personal connections working in society news, and hooks up with the policeman Brother Teh. He finds out that the car accident survivor Hsu Ai-ting had disappeared from the hospital and no one can find her whereabouts. Hsiao-chi makes up his mind to find Hsu Ai-ting’s whereabouts and investigate the truth of the car accident.

With his background in society news, Hsiao-chi makes good use of his professional talents and finds out Ai-ting’s old home. He finally finds Hsu Ai-ting at a tea shop. Because he feels guilt for his inadequate performance nine years ago, Hsiao-chi resolves to right past wrongs for Hsu Ai-ting. He has no idea that someone is following the path of his investigation, and has kidnapped Hsu Ai-ting behind his back. It appears that Hsiao-chi wasn’t the only witness to the car accident.

A series of events continue to take place. The truth learned by Hsiao-chi is completely overturned time after time. It’s like the soaking wet broken pieces have returned to the starting point. The people left behind from the car accident still live their lives in guilt, haunted by broken, secret memories.
