The White Girl was born allergic to the sun. Her only friend, Ho Zai, is too young to understand her problems. Her classmates tease her. Her overprotective father keeps her cooped up at home, there she builds her own world. All she wants is grow up and leave the village. At night, she meets an outsider, his name is Sakamoto. Though this film is about a love story, Sakamoto and The White Girl are not lovers. He becomes her mirror. She becomes his. That’s what love is: through another they see themselves, reflected, as the imperfect mess that human beings often are. Up at a historical ruin with Sakamoto, The White Girl finally has space to be free, from him, she learns to see the world from another angle.
Meanwhile, a group of “tourists” from mainland China arrive. They turn out to be property developers. Pearl Village shall be turned into their goldmine. That’s the moment, when The White Girl realizes the beauty of this place.
