Synopsis Seated in the front row of a funeral hall are a boy and a teenager, the picture of the deceased yet to be placed. A florist, Tung, is consumed by grief but puts on a front for others. The boy drops by at the florist and orders a custom floral arrangement -- a teddy bear-shaped wreath with his favorite yellow flowers -- to be readied in three days' time and paid with money saved up in his piggy bank. Tung forges an unlikely friendship with his young customer, an encounter that releases bottled-up emotions so that healing process can begin.

Remarks shared after Festival visit

“It is not a big festival, but a cozy festival. Audience and the organizers respect the directors so much. Meeting the audience from different countries is really fun. They are enthusiastic in sharing their feeling about the film. This is encouraging to me.”
