Adapted from a short story by famed Taiwanese novelist, Chen Yu Hang, Run Away is set in the famine stricken turmoil following the gradual demise of the Tang Dynasty. A band of bandits are scouring the countryside for grains to get through the approaching winter. In one of the raids a village girl, Dan Ju, is forcefully taken from her parents as collateral when the villagers come up short with grains and food for the bandits. After a dramatic turn of events, the film concludes by focusing on the wretched existence of the bandits and the complex love-hate relationship between the abducted Dan Ju and a sympathetic bandit, Ho Nan.
