Cool Short: The Story of 90 Coins

Written by Jackie Bai and directed by Michael Wong, The Story of 90 Coins is a great little romantic drama. It is well worth 10 minutes of your time to watch it.

The Story of 90 Coins’ unfolds through a special promise of love and happiness made by one male passionate lover to a seemingly reluctant girl. Ninety coins symbolize ninety days the guy gives himself to convince the girl to marry him by showing her his true color and prove his intentions.

Everything seems to go quite well as the two, in fact, fall in love. But time passes and the romance bubble deflates as reality breaks in with its daily routine, ambiguity, and incomprehension. Will they be able to overcome this critical passage or will they put an end to what it started so pure and beautiful? Without spoiling the finale, the short film reminds: “Don’t let a promise just be a beautiful memory” which somehow invites to not surrender to the hard moments of love but to try trusting its capacity of resilience and re-launch it in a greater perspective. In sum, try not to kill something beautiful as you may regret for the rest of your life.

This is the story of a promise, misunderstanding and regret. The story of 90 coins.

The film stars Han Dongjun, Zhuang Zhiqi, and Jose Acosta.
