"[Flora] Lau has crafted a drama that's both visually and emotionally lovely." - Screen Daily

Anna is a stylish Hong Kong housewife who has just been abandoned by her wealthy husband; Fai, her chauffeur, is from Shenzhen in mainland China, and is desperate to have his wife give birth over the border. Together yet apart, the two shoulder their burdens alone until their fates ultimately collide.

This subtle, moody feature debut from Flora Lau depicts a fascinating relationship that echoes the contrasting geopolitics of the two cities in question. Effortless performances from the magnetic Hong Kong star Carina Lau and Chinese heartthrob Chen Kun draw out all the subtleties from the comfortable narrative, while veteran cinematographer Christopher Doyle delivers his trademark elegance in the visual department.

"Lau exudes pathos and grace … she's impossible to take your eyes off." - Variety
