Every one of us is Romeo; every one of us is Julia. The universality of the love story between the two protagonists from Shakespeare’s iconic drama resonates in many of us. Mei Hong Lin takes the core idea of this tragic love story and illuminates the unbridled power of love that cannot be. It’s a love that unravels due to the constraints of rules and rivalries, forcing the two lovers to seek the only (and ultimate) solution to their travails by committing suicide.
