Ah Nan, a country boy, come across a mysterious astronaut on a hot and restless summer afternoon.
Although they are very different from each other, an unexpected romantic bond grows between them. Tossing and turning over the moments of the encounter under the night sky of the island Ah Nan gradually realizes that this encounter does not simply mean a summer fling.
The short film And We Collide tells an ephemeral yet permanent romance that happened within several days. The plot is not complicated, merely about two boys, two worlds, and a rocket.

I have left my hometown for more than a decade for study and work. When I come back, I often have a strong sense of strangeness.
When I first visited the rocket launch base in Wenchang, Hainan, I observed a sense of imbalance and inharmony. The large buildings surrounded by rural villages are incompatible with the local simple and closed farming life.
Thus, I want to make a film to tell this inharmony. So in a scorching July, I took Ah Nan and Ah Bei from different worlds to watch a rocket launch.
And We Collide is a tropical memory, and an unpleasant love letter as well dedicated to the lost generation who have been forgotten and abandoned, and also to the spotlighted teenagers who enjoy love such attention.
