Synopsis

Two taiwanese girls, Ron and May, are living in Berlin. As Ron’s birthday approaches, the different love that they feel for each other places them in front of a meaningful change.

Ron, a nineteen-year-old girl, is deeply in love with her best friend, May. A short time after Ron moves from Taipei, May decides to join her in Berlin. The love between them is strong but contrasting: Ron does not openly tell May of her feelings but May is conscious of what she represents to her friend. Nevertheless, she keeps enjoying her life, taking all she can from Ron until she takes too much. Her choices lead both girls to face who they are and how they might live life to the fullest.

☆ Inspired by the love poem "A Birthday", by Christina Rossetti.
☆ A delicate interpretation of the inseparable, passionate emotions between girls in love.
