Synopsis
Ah Zhan basks in the sun every day, riding on his bike, hanging out at the coffee shop, enjoying his crush on the waitress and basically living the life of a hipster. That is until he accidentally realized the life he led is nothing but a mini film. Everything good in it is a product placement. With his lover, he decided to break out of this mode and break free.
