When Adam and Eva break up after ten years, Adam thinks the breach was caused by one trivial incident, but Eva knows she's already forgiven Adam 77 times! Sweethearts since law school, Adam changed professions to start a Thai boxing studio and gradually became indifferent to Eva.

Entitled "77 Heartbreaks", the title refers to the philosophy that "forgiving someone 7 times isn't enough; 70 x 7 times is too much; so go ahead and forgive 77 times!" Reading it makes Adam realize his love. But what can he do to win her back?
Cast & Credits
"77 Heartbreaks" is a modern novel, forgiving someone seven times is not enough; 70 x 7 times is too much, so 77 times is the best ...
"77 Heartbreaks" unfolds in two parallel timelines: first, in the present, where Adam and Eve fit into each other's lives; and second, as flashbacks, to the countless occasions that Eva wrote in her diary. The script is unstable, the movie suffers from ups and downs in short is prolific, has emotional impact of the last third that gives a differential touch, cinematography and other elements are great.
Yet as significant as the seventy-seventh disorder is not only turning it into a narrative cliché but also reducing the psychological scar that it would leave in any woman.
