Based on true social events, The Rice Bomber tells the story of agricultural workers compromised by trade policies beyond their control. When Taiwan joins the WTO, the quota of rice importation is opened up; policies like cutting agricultural subsidies and converting confiscated farm fields to industrial wastelands are implemented to deal with the new situation. Having witnessed how his farmer grandparents and other villages suffered due to the policy change, Ru decides to take matters into his own hands - he devises 17 "rice bombs" to bring attention to the issue.
