The stories are inspired by each director's interpretation of how to pursue love. The film has big stars attached to it including Chinese superstar 36-year old Zhang Ziyi, who recently got engaged to her rocker boyfriend Wang Feng.

Actress Michelle Chen, describes her role in the film as "A woman who is seeking love during the end of the world and finally discovers it at an unnoticeable corner."

Director Guan Hu's wife Liang Jing, who stars as the lead actress in the part of the film that he directed, explained her role in the film during a press conference saying, "My role in the film is that I act as a woman who gradually loses her way during her marriage, throughout the production and filming I realized that if one only focuses on his or her needs and forgets that his or her partner has needs too then you will slowly suffer a loss of love. In fact, only when you sacrifice is when you will discover that love is actually often with you." 

The film will be released nationwide in China on Valentine's day, February 14th.
