Synopsis
Like its leading lady, this poignant romance defies expectations and consistently surprises. Ng turns in a soulful performance as breast cancer survivor Judy, thrust into an unlikely relationship with low-level criminal, Jordan when the pair become caretakers for a triad boss’ infant son. As they awkwardly take up their new duties, something resembling romance blossoms. Director Yip infuses realism with depth, creating flawed, genuine characters through incidental action and quietly expressive moments.
