The plot follows Cheng Xiaoshi and Lu Guang, who run a store called “Time Photo Studio”. LINK CLICK being a supernatural title, both main characters have special powers, which they use profusely to fulfill clients’ requests. Namely, they enter the photographs to travel back in time to the moment the photos were taken. Thereby, the two assume the identity of the photographer, becoming privy to their emotions and memories.
Hopefully, additional information will emerge soon, as LINK CLICK (時光代理人, Shiguang Dailiren) is one of the masterpieces of Chinese animation.
