Sean, a surfboard maker so desperately romantic that when he suffered a surfing accident after breaking up with his girlfriend (Tiffany Hsu Wei-ning), his friends assume it is a suicide attempt. All is, however, well again when he falls in love with the witty tattooist Emily (Zhou Dongyu).
The cinematography is vibrant and colorful the narrative fences between a fantasy novel and a funny but sad story of a good man being immobilized by the love of his partner. The cinematographic trick gives a peculiar charm. Overall "Nail Clipper Romance" is a bittersweet and sometimes ridiculous romantic fable within the context of the story.
