“We wanted the film to reflect how the very roots of the brand started, bringing together nine beautiful women of various creative backgrounds.”

The film epitomises a surreal, sundrenched scenario wherein passionfruits are the very object of each girl’s desire. Each year they meet together with an unspoken connection as they slurp, suck, and playfully interact with the passion fruits. From the seeds they repeat the tradition by planting them back into the ground and waiting for the vine to grow again until next year when they will meet again..
