Film description

A fairy-tale, futuristic variation of the Shakespearean drama, set in an idyllic land. Two protagonists are staying in a special, closed-off district of Taipei, in which the WiFi is gone, and so are the confines of sexes. Rosalind is looking for her father and, with the help of her cousin Celia, wants to bring him back to the family and stop her scheming uncle from taking over the family business. But during the search, she meets Orlando, who will not let her leave the magical place too soon.

The candy-sweet, gloriously colorful convention combines the inspiration with Japanese romantic manga and the avant-garde eclectic fashion with the melodramatic traditions of the Taiwanese Opera and video game- style ornaments, creating a collage of fantastic images, testing the limits of our imagination. The directors decided to only cast women in the film – in opposition to the Elizabethan traditions of all-male theater, but also as a nod to little-known traditions of female theaters in Asia, such as the Japanese Takarazuka. They aimed to create a perfect world that would be completely free – just like their aesthetic choices, extremely far-reaching, and dazzling with the richness of detail.
