In a parallel universe of 2022 Taiwan, all services in temples have become electronic. With just one click, ancestors and the deceased are prayed for, and oracles are revealed. Under the costumes and masks on ceremonial parade, are no longer human beings, but robots. The virtualized temple activities have left much land unused and redundant. The question of which sector will be able to exploit these ‘controversial lands’ is still to be settled—agriculture or the semiconductor industry? A referendum, therefore, is held to decide.
Fu-Y is the scion of Taiwan’s biggest landlord. He is betrothed to Liza, the daughter of the country’s chief farmer. It is a union arranged with careful political calculation. The wedding is celebrated in Taiwan’s most grandiose temple. At the ceremony, the bridegroom’s mother and father are both assassinated, and their respective spouses are arrested for murder. Our protagonist, secret agent GUAN Yi-shi, joins forces with genius hacker, ZHONG Xin-shi, in an attempt to find the killer. This endeavor leads them to uncover many dirty secrets, not least that the government perpetrated the crime!
