Will Love in Spring

When city girl Zhuang Jie (Zhou Yu Tong) travels back home to Nanping from Shanghai, she does not realize the dramatic turn her life will take.

After having lost her leg as a teenager in a car crash, it was the rebellious Mai Dong who had installed confidence in her back then.

However, as adults, the two are very different. Zhuang Jie’s exuberance and free spirit is in contrast to the enigmatically stoic Mai Dong. Even though she makes the first move, Zhuang Jie is unable to commit herself in a long-term relationship as she prefers her independence over anything. But as sparks fly and the two fall hopelessly in love, Zhuang Jie’s own insecurities come to the surface. She has been denying herself pleasure, is hesitant to expose herself to anyone, and regards her body as a burden. However, she has underestimated Mai Dong, who is a compassionate and understanding man and regards Zhuang Jie complete in every possible way, loving her deeply.

“Will Love in Spring” is a heartwarming story of love, healing, and acceptance. As it delves into issues of loss, grief, and death, it also highlights that the biggest celebration is being alive.
