Blue Tears Ep.1

Hsiao-Yue Tsao (TW)

Inspired by an old tale of the sea, the story is based on the unique wonder in Matsu, the Blue Tears, to tell a touching love story. To fulfil the promise of giving the heroine a good life, the naïve hero became greedy and died in a shipwreck, sacrificing his life for wealth. The appearance of the blue tears, symbolizing an alien species, implies the sadness of global warming. The love between the two main characters ends up making them fall into different pathways.
