Synopsis

‘Tracy Choi’s feature debut gently breaks new ground.’
– The Hollywood Reporter

MELBOURNE PREMIERE

Winner of the Audience Award at the 2017 Inside Out Toronto LGBT Film Festival, Director Tracy Choi’s beautiful drama explores the fine line between friendship and romantic love through Sei as she returns from Taiwan to Macau to mourn Ling’s death and understand their relationship. Sei tries to understand her past, shown through flashbacks, beginning when she starts work as a teenager in a seedy massage parlour and is quickly taken under the wing of the older, charismatic Ling. When Ling discovers she’s pregnant, they raise the boy together as a family. Tensions mount in their relationship with gossiping neighbours and, after a bitter fight on the eve of Macau’s return to China, things come to a dramatic head. Stunning performances from the two young leads, Jennifer Yu and Fish Liew bring this subtle portrait of lesbian love, loss and longing to life.
