Being a Chinese myself, i can definitely relate to this story in terms of what it means to be a closeted individual in the realms of consistently keeping in tune with such a diverse society. It's not easy keeping a balance between preserving conservative family tradition and finding your desired independent values and beliefs. I reckon it's the same for every one of us, to some certain extent, regardless of whether you're gay, straight, chinese, african, indian or caucasian.
This is definitely a very good break in the gay film industry in respect of the Chinese culture, but more than that, it's a story about self-conflict, tradition, faith and love.
Very nicely projected, indeed.
