In this gorgeous animation awash with vivid brush-strokes and watercolour, a young couple struggles with their relationship by confronting familial and cultural pressures. Their phone conversation is visualized as an epic feud between lovers in ancient China, complete with high-flying rooftop combat and passionate pursuit on horseback.
