Introduction
A story about Kou the baker and his girlfriend Jordy. The film glances over the scenes through the frame of KouᐤØs unusually thick glasses. Working as a baker, Kou plays drums as a member of an underground band. It quietly depicts the dry romance with trivial expectations and misunderstandings between Kou and Jordy like a real situation. Kou is a real baker and one of directorᐤØs friends. Kou and Jordy are not lovers in the reality. Framing them together, however, director describes sentiments and trivial problems of those who live in Hong Kong right now like a documentary. (b-won Lee)
