SKY of LOVE
Starring KEN ZHU as WEN JIA-HUI and GIGI LEUNG as XIAO-JIA
1982 - XIAO-JIA dressed in a
bright red cardigan, white dress and white sneakers looks elegant as she walks
briskly past slogans "Study for making China strong!" "Work down-to-earth to
make China strong" across her University campus. She turns to peer into a
classroom, a shy smile creeps across her face when she sees WEN TAO, a handsome
young man. When he turns, Xiao Jia ducks into an empty Radiophone room before he
can spot her. Frantic, she accidentally knocks a broken short wave radio to the
floor. Hearing the noise Wen Tao comes in. Xiao-jia startled, looked towards the
radiophone, ...it's my hobby! Embarrassed, she takes the radio home. A lovely
full moon illuminates the night, Xiao-jia daydreams of Wen Tao, photos of him
decorate her room. Suddenly, the radiophone squeaks to life... "CQ, CQ iece."
Xiao-jia sits in front of radiophone the next night - "Hello?" The same voice answers. He is also a student at the university, his name is WEN JIA-HUI. They decide to meet next to the Chairman's sculpture on campus at 2pm the next day.
The clock points at 3 O'clock. Xiao-jia is tired of standing in the heat, she's been waiting for an hour and no one ever showed up. Same clock - Wen Jia-hui stands in the pouring rain, completely wet. He wears a very contemporary T-shirt of 2002 and is dressed in today's fashions. He too is annoyed that he's been stood up.
We come to discover that they are from different times, and the radio acts as some kind of time machine. Wen Jui-hui studies old newspapers, trying to prove to them both that this can be real. They are speaking across 20 years of time. As their friendship grows, they discuss Xiao-jia's love for Wen Jia-hui, the differences in time and society.
Ya-qin tries to talk sense into her best friends head "The man who claims to be from 2002 is only messing with you." Xiao-jia stubbornly believes in him. Xiao-jia, Ya-qin and Jia-hui spend a lot of time together, growing very close. Her love for him grows stronger every day and we begin to suspect that that love is not returned. One evening, Xiao-jia relates a story to WenJian-hui over the radio about how Jia-hui is now in the same hospital as her best friend, both with broken bones! Wen Jia-hui laughs " It's somewhat like my parent's story. My mother is Su Ya-qin, my father is Wen Tao. Have you heard of their names? Do you know them?"
Xiao-jia is heartbroken. She
realizes the truth...that she is not meant for WenJia-hui. She turns against her
friends and realizes she can never love another man. Jia-hui goes to his parents
home and finds old photos of them in college, most are pictures of Wen-tao and
Ya-qin, but in two them a young Xiao-jia also appears.
scene changes and Jia-hui following along behind her, walking along the stone
wall. He stops and places his hands on the stones.
