When a cold-hearted telecommunications executive returns to his small island town for his estranged mother's burial, he learns about the true Taiwanese tradition that mandates him to marry within 100 days so that the parent's spirit can transition peacefully. When a typhoon leaves him stranded for three days, he rekindles a romance with his free spirited, childhood sweetheart who is engaged to marry a local villager.

Director Henry Chan says he was drawn to the project because the script resonates with his own life experiences. “When I read 100 Days, it struck a cord deep inside me, because Bo Dan’s story is my story,” says Chan. “It’s about coming home to find what you have missed all these years. It’s about seeing yourself in the most honest way. It’s about falling in love again.  Immigrants like myself have long tried to fit in the new world. Sometimes by burying our old identities...How often do we get the chance to stop and really look deep into ourselves? How often can we relive our most cherished memories? In 100 DAYS, our hero does just that.”
