When five-year-old Goldfish Lim, a charming little girl goes missing, it is a terrible nightmare for her distraught parents, but for everyone else, it’s just another sad story that soon fades from memory.

As the hours tick by, Goldfish’s missing persons case remains unsolved. And amidst this mystery, seven souls who live utterly unrelated lives seem to be interconnected in curious ways.

Trigger Warnings (as suggested by translator): mentions of emotional abuse and childhood trauma

T/N regarding translated title: A literal translation of the Chinese title would be “We brush past each other in the rainbow light”, but the current translator chose not to use that. There are two reasons for this: 1) They personally think it doesn’t bring out quite the same emotional impact as the Chinese title in English; 2) even the official English title, “The Sparkling Moment”, isn’t a literal translation, but they personally don’t like it, so they came up with the current title. Both the official English title and the translated title, the translator believes, refer to the same theme in the novel.
