Synopsis

Yi-Yi, Yun, Ming and Lian-Lian. Three eras, three stories involving three groups of different people with the same exact names. Spanning through the 40s, 80s and the present day, these seemingly unrelated stories are all linked as we follow the characters seek out love and their own paths. Just as the characters, we are all searching for someone in life, as though walking on waves and reaching out for the shimmer glowing just underneath…

Director's Statement

Every single person is looking for someone to be with, to love. But we all come into the world alone, and to learn the fact that it is our nature to be alone is the start of understanding that solitude should not mean loneliness in the heart.
