TAKE ME TO THE MOON
It’s 1997. Six high school buddies get together to form a band. Pei, the feisty lead singer, is the heart of the group, and Xiang, the guitarist, harbours a crush on her. On the eve of their graduation, Pei gets to fulfill her dream of moving to Japan and becoming a singer. Years later, Xiang garners the courage to follow and confess his love to Pei, only to realize a cruel secret between dreams and reality.
The high school buddies gather again in 2017 at a friend’s funeral. After the reunion, Xiang wakes up transported back to 1997, three days after their graduation, and is given the chance to change everyone’s fate.
