"It is hard for a lonely person to find a soul-touching relationship with another in this era of social media explosion and smartphone obsession, especially for a retro high school boy in China, who is experiencing the rebellious phase of his youth. He is alienated by other people and he is unwilling to open his mind to others. One day, when he captures an unforgettable smile on a young girl's face through his 35mm film camera, he decides to pick up the first cellphone in his life to chase the warmness of that smile. After the pain of making a change, the young boy is finally able to smile. That smile has not shown up for a very long time. No matter how cruel and flat the world can be, your smile is unforgettable, like a ray of sunshine breaking through to dawn. That is what I am eager to tell through this narrative short film." -- Abstract
