In the project Return, Shake used the unique historical landscape in the Treasure Hill as the backgrounds and tried to reconstruct the roles Eastern Depot Tsao from Dragon Inn, adopted daughter Hsiao-Yue from Beautiful Duckling and joker Kun-Shu from The Sandwich Man. Through sorting the contextual research of these films, she went through the political ideology that Taiwanese society experienced, as well as the social and cultural overviews. And further, she used cultural elements from different eras to reinterpret these three diverse film characters, as to examine how these roles were being made in that particular era, and how that could be continued in the present time.
