Bamboo plants only bloom once, but if one does, all nearby plants go along. The same thing happens to a bunch of thirteen year old girls who are spending their summer days on an abandoned piece of land, overgrown by bamboo. When a mysterious man arrives on the girl’s property, they have to let go of their carefree summer one by one.
Critical remark by the writer/director of this film: “If I ought to make Bamboe again today, I wouldn’t portray a person of color in such an exotic way. When I wrote the film back in 2016, I thought it was essential to the story, but now I realize the film could have done perfectly without the stereotype. That being said, I hope there’s other aspects to the film that are still worth it.”
