The classic Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov was first published in 1955. The book describes an adult man's obsession with a twelve-year-old girl.
The controversial novel is written entirely from the perspective of the adult. What would happen if we turned that perspective around? If we looked at it from the point of view of the child who is immensely attracted to the forbidden world of adults?
The makers of Lo Lie Taa were inspired by their youth. Memories of love as a flurry of butterflies, of desire that is as free as the wind, of despair from clandestine affairs, and of being trapped in a child's costume. Can adults look without bias at a child's desires?
