A Feature film by Flora Lau

Release in France : 15/07/2015

    Synopsis

    This story takes place between Hong Kong and Shenzhen in continental China.
    Anna leads the life of a wealthy Hong Kong wife; she takes tango lessons and meets her girlfriends for expensive lunches. But each day, she is above all keeping up appearances for rapidly disappearing wealth.
    Fai, her chauffeur, lives in Shenzhen. Ting, his wife, is pregnant with their second child. In order to avoid the heavy fine imposed when couples have more than one child, Fai and Ting struggle to ensure that their baby will be born in Hong Kong, where the One-Child law doesn't apply.
    It is the same world, separated by a line that cannot be crossed.
    But, the time comes when, within the space of a car, the destinies of all three people will take entirely new directions.
