Paper Stars



An unlikely friendship develops between two girls – Jia Yee is the leader of a girl-gang and Charlene is a diffident schoolgirl who is easily bullied. When Charlene is mistaken to have informed against a gang for smoking in school, Jia Yee is bribed by them to teach Charlene a lesson. In a chance encounter later, they realise how similar their circumstances are and thus find their loneliness alleviated in each other’s company.
