Taipei, summer 1985. A mysterious magician shows up at Zhongua Market, a gigantic business centre populated with numerous individuals whose back stories differ vastly. Among them are nine children who will cross paths with the newcomer, whose tricks could very well change their lives forever. This adaptation of the eponymous novel by Wu Ming-yi, The Magician on the Skywalk, includes ten stories which all explore imagination in their own way. Urban legends, optical illusions and prestidigitation intertwine to transform pedestrian everyday life into a fantastic world in which even the restrooms are magical and where people can shapeshift into zebras on a whim.
