Director Statement

“It’s called blind or it is natural ability of love when some people can overlook something about the one they love. I appreciate someone really loves his wife or looks at her as a woman, just not a transgender one. So I like to show the case in good mood as a romantic comedy movie for widely acceptance their love as an ordinary love.”
