The police in Hong Kong have log books that are kept in small boxes on the sides of buildings — in this case, on the outside wall of a coffee shop. A young woman writes a love note to the patrol officer, but a young man plays the trickster, editing the note slightly, taking the scene down a very different path. In the closing credits, the filmmaker itemizes the costs of the various props, costumes, and equipment used in the film (grand total: $5,010). Cute and funny; definitely worth seeing.
