Three interconnected stories about three women living in three different eras. "Drifting Flowers" weaves a poetic tale of drifting as all the women seek their true identity. As time ebbs and flows, as love comes and goes, their journey towards finding themselves never ends. First, eight-year old May discovers the bitter taste of first love when she accidentally sees her blind sister Jing kissing their bandâ€™s tomboy accordionist Diego. So strong is the childâ€™s jealousy that the three are torn apart. In another time and place, Lily struggles with Alzheimerâ€™s and fragile memory of youth. When her old friend Yen comes to visit, he brings more bad news â€“ struck by HIV, he is giving up on life. Between Lilyâ€™s hallucinations and Yenâ€™s collapsing health, the two form an unexpected bond and rediscovered the meaning to live and love again. Finally, there is Diego, years before she left her hometown and joined the band. Still in high school, the confused teenager binds her growing breasts despite being called â€œboy girlâ€ by her traditional family. An impromptu performance changes her destiny, as Diego faces her unknown future with courage and hope.
