When a young man and woman see each other for the first time, their supposedly innocent glances strike a mutual recognition that implies a profound, undying love has just come into being. After the physically hunky swim coach (Tang Hoi-kong) and his fetching young student (Ng Mei-chi) make initial eye contact, romance takes the form of silent longing, dedicated swimming, soul-baring entries in a diary, and the requisite talks with every single close friend who might have a word of advice. By the time the couple's individual, internal turmoil is even partially resolved, viewers may have aged considerably.
