Ever since the death of their parents, Hui-jun has been too busy looking after her little brother and their family chicken farm to look after herself or go dating. With her younger brother’s wedding approaching and being 38, people are talking about her status as a single lady. She surprises everyone when she starts an online romance through an app under the name “Salli.” Her beau is a Frenchman named Martin and she is smitten but people are sceptical of his existence and intentions. To prove to everyone that their love is genuine, Hui-jun embarks on her first overseas trip by going to Paris to find him…
The journey that Salli takes is an example of “looking for love and finding one’s self” that gently probes and pokes fun at how Taiwanese society handles women. The outdated traditions and views clashing with modern dating mores and aspirations women have are explored through a loveable main protagonist who pushes boundaries even while the film ultimately proves to be traditional itself.
