The movie begins in the 19th century in China, with two girls named Snow Flower (Jennifer Lim) and Lily (Christina Y. Jun) who bond together for eternity. They are isolated by their families and communicate by writing in a secret language. Then, in the present day of Shanghai, they struggle with the intimacy of their own childhood friendship. Then, they must understand the story such as ancestral connection, hidden from them in the folds of the antique white silk fan, or losing one. [Wiki]
