Three high school students experience the perks and pitfalls of love in director Leste Chen's sensitive tale of friendship and yearning. As a child living in a seaside town in southern Taiwan, studious Jonathan (Bryant Chang) was asked by his concerned teacher to look after rebellious classmate Shane (Joseph Chang). 10 years later, what was once a good-natured obligation has since blossomed into a warm friendship, with Jonathan still on the academic track and Shane finding his calling on the basketball court.
When Taiwan-born schoolgirl Carrie (Kate Yeung) transfers to their school from Hong Kong and convinces Jonathan to join her on a secret day-trip to Taipei, her botched effort to seduce him in a sleazy love hotel, combined with her observations of he and Shane's friendship, soon leads her to believe that the object of her affections is homosexual and in love with his best friend. Despite her initial misgivings about the boorish Shane, Carrie soon begins to give in to the troublemaker's roguish charms. She accepts his offer to become his girlfriend on the condition that he manages to enter university. Later, as Shane pulls his act together and Jonathan begins to experience a sexual identity crisis, the former does his best to keep his feelings for Carrie secret in order to protect the feelings of his lifelong friend. Despite Jonathan's, Shane's, and Carrie's best efforts to keep their personal feelings secret, the truth eventually emerges, forcing all three to view their relationships in an entirely new light.

Beautiful & evocative movie with a great piano OST & Ending song by Ah Shin (Mayday); Eternal Summer.

The story is somewhat slow but everything is expertly tied together with great acting by the three leads & is worth watching for the stylish cinematography alone.

Warning: BL/Gay themes. Some nudity.

What can you say? I'm emotionally exhausted. Beautiful, sensitive, moving experience. Faultless.
