Synopsis: When a spark from the past shakes up Jamie’s present, will he follow his heart or society’s expectations?
Being best friends in high school, Kevin and Jamie’s emotional attachment and feelings for each other are abruptly cut short by Kevin’s departure to Australia with his mother. Fast-forward a dozen years later: Jamie tracks down Kevin in Australia. The reunion with his best friend reminds Kevin—suffering from depression—of his youthful ambitions, so he decides to return to Hong Kong. Jamie, however, enjoying a steady relationship with his girlfriend, finds his feelings for Kevin reawakened and growing stronger. Inevitably, Jamie must make a choice between society’s expectations or following his heart.
The Hollywood Reporter lauds the film’s “authentic, intimate moments and grace notes that convey a sense of place.”
