Take me to the Moon
“Head held high, without leaving a trace of regret.”
Wang has had a crush on his close friend Emma since high school, but never found the courage to confess his feelings. Twenty years after, Emma won a local audition to work under a mega-producer in Tokyo, however, she has failed so miserably in her music career.
When Wang finds himself traveled back in time to his high school days, the film turns into a nostalgia tour that relishes its recreated sights of 1997 Taipei as much as Chang Yu-Sheng’s repertoire of bittersweet tunes. As Wang tries to sabotage the audition that would precede Emma’s downfall, the price of success becomes a running debate between the would-be lovers.
