The story of 2 boys, one a swimmer and the other a dancer. The swimmer gets hurt during a mugging and starts to believe that his swim career is over. The dancer, who is deaf, stays by the swimmer's side during his recovery even though the swimmer is having a difficult time dealing with what has happened and is sometimes mean to him. Slowly, the dancer is helping the swimmer get back into the pool. (Source: Noona at MyDramaList) Edit Translation

Low budget, short film.

Clicked on this one in YT without expecting something. It scream low-budget film and the cinematography is not great. However, I was hooked with its story telling with deaf character. I was honestly wondering why the main is not communicating properly, only to find out that he is deaf which added to the short films drama. I think if the production has enough budget, they can make this more interesting.

Also, I love, love, love the OST. I am not sure if I heard the song used in other Tawian BL (HIStory 1 or 2). It was the thing that actually hooked me to continue watching after the glaring DIY-like cinematography.

Trying to send a Great Message, but not really delivering on it

Don't bother watching it.

~~ STORY ~~

The synopsis was great, but the script fails spectacularly. The dancer is seen taking care of the swimmer, but at no point does he convince swimmer to swim again. The film ends just as the swimmer starts to feel like he can smile again. The ending where they fall into the pool and swim was quite rushed. The ending was a "What did I just watch?" type of ending because it was so rushed.

~~ ACTING ~~

The acting was great, but was wasted on a lackluster script.

This film has very little spoken words, so that should speak for how good their acting is.


Don't bother watching this. It's a waste of time.
