Synopsis
When Yesterday Comes is an omnibus of four short films produced by the Taiwan Catholic Foundation of Alzheimer's Disease and Related Dementia to spread awareness and understanding of senile dementia and the plight of the elderly. All four shorts are directed by emerging Taiwanese filmmakers and starring well-known actors such as Li Lieh, Amber Kuo, Chang Chen and Sonia Sui. 

In Chiang Hsiu Chiung's "Healing", Chang Chen takes to the streets to look for his grandfather who has wandered off, and unexpectedly runs into a past lover played by Sonia Sui. 

Ho Wi Ding's "I Wake Up in a Strange Bed" looks at the world from the perspective of an Alzheimer's patient (Ding Chiang) who encounters his first love in a park, and returns to the moment of their first meeting. 

Shen Ko Shang's "Power On" portrays how a senile grandmother stills believes that she's a singer, while her tired daughter (Li Lieh), and wacky granddaughter (Amber Kuo) find a new way for the family to live together. 

Singing Chen's "The Clock" draws a connection between the memories of the elderly and the urban space, exploring how people view fading memories and the disappearing city.
