Snapshots mean pictures taken spontaneously using Polaroid or non-professional cameras.
Yan meets Ming when he is at his lowest and doesn’t know what to do with his life. Yan herself, who emigrated to Germany from Hong Kong with her family, has run away from home on finding out that she has a terminal disease. In this way she and Ming come together. Two lonely and helpless people joined by fate, offering each other comfort and support. And in the end they are left with snapshots in their hands to remind them of a beautiful time together.
