Synopsis by Mark Deming
Four tales of life among Taiwan's lesbian community are shared in this omnibus drama. In one story, Spancer (Niki Wu) and Summer (Kao Yi-ling) are lovers, but while Spancer is deeply in love with her partner, Summer is having second thoughts and wants to take a decade off from their romance in order to pursue relationships with men. Karena Lam plays Ricky, a woman who cannot come to terms with her violent nature, and often finds herself beating the women she loves. Jessie has left her long-time boyfriend under bitter circumstances, and after meeting her best-friend from high school, Pon, she learns that her former confidante has strong feelings for her. And a delivery person has a hard time tracking down a woman named "Candy Rain" who is supposed to receive a special package. Hua chile na nuhai (aka Candy Rain) was an official entry at the 2008 Hong Kong Film Festival.
