A fictional but down-the-block account of being a lesbian in a society that does not accept alternative sexual identities. The 2004 Hong Kong picture tells the story of a grown and married woman who had been madly in love with another young woman during her teenage years. Such relationships are not accepted in her community, and she resigns herself to a traditional life, married to a man. Her entire life is turned upside-down when she meets a young, attractive and free-spirited musician, rekindling her inner attraction and love for women. The film is notable for tackling issues faced by homosexuals which, like the fictional one it portrays, does not openly accept people who identify as gay.
