Kearen Pang
It’s 2005 and Christy — born and raised in Hong
Kong — is a week away from turning 30. Her job is
stressful, her rela!onship stuck, her parents aging
and annoying.
Joyce — also a week shy of her 30th birthday —
leads a vastly different lifestyle in Hong Kong. She’s
in a dead‐end job and has never been in love. With
her indomitable op!mism she takes off on a trip to
fulfill a childhood dream.
When Christy is suddenly evicted from her apart‐
ment she temporarily moves into Joyce’s while
she’s away. Though the two have never met and
are as different as night and day, Joyce enables
Christy to ‘know’ her in unique and touching ways.
Director Kearen Pang has skillfully adapted her ex‐
tremely successful stage play, graciously opening
her heart to wider audiences in this sensi!ve, upli$‐
ing film.
