“Should you give your first kiss to the boy who likes you or the girl you like?” MENG Ker-Rou and LIN Yue-Zhen are high school friends who can talk to each other about everything and anything. On the school grounds one early summer, Yue-Zhen develops a crush on the charming ZHANG Shih-Hao, and asks Ker-Rou to help her pass on a love letter to him. Ker-Rou is furious upon discovering that the letter was actually written in her name, but by then, Shih-Hao had already madly fallen in love with her.
Director YEE Chih-Yen avoided symbols commonly seen in Taiwan New Cinema films, such as military dependents' villages and old houses, instead focusing on the innocent and simple love of young people and their exploration of sexual and self-identity. Adopting a refreshing and aesthetically pleasing style and employing the use of simple images and language, the film is said to have opened the doors for the growth of youth-oriented films in Taiwan.
