It tells the story of a family embroiled in the tragic "White Terror" suppression of political dissidents that was wrought during the 1950s by the Kuomintang government (KMT) after their acquisition of Taiwan in the 1940s.

The film received generally negative reviews from the press.
Hong Kong film critic Perry Lam writes in Muse Magazine, 'Prince of Tears makes a strange movie-going experience for, despite all the pathos - two little girls lose their father, a loyal soldier loses his life and a happy family is torn apart - the story is aesthetically shaped and distanced by the pictoral verve of the director to be eye-pleasing at all times.'
