The Third Solar Term / Qi Zhe

International Short Film Competition

When Qizhe comes home for the holidays, he has to play the perfect son obeying his mother. The only time he can be himself is at night, flirting online with a red-haired influencer. Their meeting in the real world makes Qizhe wonder if he wants to continue leading a double life. Is it a coincidence that they meet during the third solar moon - the time when insects wake up from hibernation?
