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

Trailer: https://vimeo.com/109239318

-----------
Inspired by the love poem ”A Birthday,” by Christina Rossetti, the film takes place close to the Birthday of Ron,
a nineteen-years-old girl who is deeply in love with May, her best friend. A short time after Ron moves from Taipei, May decides to join her in Berlin.
The love between them is strong but contrasting: Ron doesn’t openly tell May 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.
