Synopsis Kuen is a lounge singer on Temple Street. Her son Kakei, now a university student, returns to Hong Kong for just a few days after emigrating to Canada with his father. Kuen's colleague Kit has to work overnight and enlists Kuen’s help to take care of her young son. During the sleepless night, Kuen and Ka-kei relive their past and envisage their future through another pair of mother and son. Under the bright sun, the cycle of life and family relationships continue, made all the more touching by the nuanced moments of care and concern between each other. Sham Ka-ki of Weeds On Fire plays the son and renders a tender and layered performance full of subtlety.
Distribution & Screening Enquiry

Remarks shared after Festival visit

"Chinese Visual Festival held their screening sessions in the cinema of British Film Institute where mostly screen classic and independent film. Before the screenings, the staffs delivered leaflets that about the films and related interview articles to the audience. It let the audience to have initial ideas of the films before watching them. Besides, There were about 20 seats in the film corner where anyone could watch all of the British film collection for free, such as work of British director- Ken Loach. I think this kind of educational practice is really meaningful and worth to follow."

"The passion of the audience in Udine for Asian movies is far beyond expectation. There were long queues in every screening session. It was a pity that I did not have the chance to directly interact with the audience, I just had a brief introduction before the screening. But luckily, I met a few experienced and well-known directors and actors, such as Johnnie To, Sylvia Chang and John Shum. Mr To even had joined a few dinner meetings with all of the Fresh Wave directors which were really interesting experiences."
