A woman invests all of her time into cooking for her stern, demanding boyfriend, who ignores her wish to go on a picnic with him. One day, she discovers that oranges are good cooking material. Strangely, she becomes happy whenever she eats oranges, but her boyfriend doesn’t even glance at them. Now what is she going to do with house-full of oranges? This witty film focuses on independence in relationships, rather than inter-dependency. (Billy Choi)
