Synopsis

Teddy Award-winning Director Zero Chou weaves three poetic tales as the lesbians in Drifting Flowers seek their true identify. In the first story, Jing, a blind singer, falls in love with her band's tomboy accordionist Diego. In another time and place, Lily, an elderly lesbian and Yen, her gay friend, create an unexpected bond and support each other in a time of crisis. Finally, we see Diego before she joined the band, when as a teenager she came to grips with her gender identity.

"The film's strongest performer is Chao, who infuses the thinly written Chalkie with a level of empathy that belies the actual material's depth.""-Elizabeth Kerr, The Hollywood Reporter"
