Just finished watching A Lonely Fish 寂寞鱼• 听见 , which was shown only on Toggle.

Personally, I felt that the show was interesting and had a focused story-line. Though only a few characters are introduced, it was still engaging. It also triggered those good nostalgic memories during high school. At the same time, it reminded me on the importance of kinship. This film had an unexpected twist towards the finale which heightened the show. The hidden truth then began to piece up and enlighten viewers.
