Starry Starry Night is the whimsical and emotionally resonant coming-of-age story of Mei. To escape her parents’ bickering, Mei immerses herself in a fantasy world, populated by over-sized origami animals and shadowy beasts. Meanwhile, troubled newcomer Jay becomes an instant target for schoolmates’ taunting. Brought together by mutual loneliness, Mei and Jay sneak away to Mei’s grandfather’s cottage in the countryside. Based on the graphic novel by Taiwanese writer Jimmy Liao, Starry Starry Night is a charming portrayal of life-changing events that can happen when finding your place in the world.
