Set inside a cramped house, this short film narrates the story of a young girl seeking to define her gender and identity. She started to dress in man’s clothes and cut her hair short which dismayed her mother and sister. Luna served as a text that needs to be read and interpreted. It required viewers to look beyond what is on the screen because its visual presentations are merely metaphors.
