Volunteer, Non-Union, Student Film for Langara College.
It’s the same project as ‘China Aster’.
AZA and DALI have been dating for more than 1 year and they are an international same-sex couple. Lately, they have not been getting along very well. One day, AZA accidentally finds a picture of DALI kissing a stranger on her phone after DALI came back to their place drunk. During their fight, AZA bumps into a vase with a red gerbera in it, which was a gift from DALI for their first year anniversary, and consequently, it drops and breaks. Later, DALI brings a white gerbera as an apology, but she finds AZA kissing a stranger outside.
The symbolic language of flowers for a red gerbera represents ‘being unconscious in love’ in North America and for a white gerbera is ‘hope’ and ‘uprightness’ in Japanese. The name AZA is derived from an azalea flower which means neatness in Japanese and DALI is from a dahlia flower which means instability in North America. DALI is already casted and she is Japanese. The script is written in English.
