  • May 05, 2010
    An incredible love story of endless love, a songwriter (Kit) who is struggling through life with the troubles that tear at the soul of most me, after breaking up with a star singer (Tracy), with little money to his name he moves into a rundown building, living above a incredibly perky young lady (Min). Min will stop at nothing to get Kit out of his shell. Min's family are street singers and, as Kit soon surmises, the girl has great potential to move beyond this modest existence and into the recording industry. Transformed by his exposure to Min, Kit makes plans with her to start a career, but the unimaginable happens: After over ten years of perfect health, the bone cancer Min experienced as a child has returned. The willpower and zest for living which has helped keep Min alive for this long quickly extinguishes, and it is up to Kit to help her try and regain it. I warn you this is a Tear Jerker. I can give it no less then 4 1/2 stars. .
