There are no memorable quotes in this film as it is mostly silent. It plays like a symphony with glances and expressions doing the talking.
It is about love: love lost, unrequited love, love despite the odds being against it.
Theresa Poh Lin Chan was deaf and blind. She did not sit idly by in misery, but became an accomplished women despite her handicaps. She is real. This story is about three fictional characters that crossed in her path, some only peripherally.
A man who lost his wife and sunk into the depths of despair until his son, a social worker, started taking his cooking to Teresa; a lesbian who found love on the Internet, and then lost it without explanation, and whose suicide attempt brought about the meeting with the man and Teresa; and a security guard who was hopelessly in love with a beautiful executive and passed by the man on the way to deliver a letter to his love - a letter that never made it because of the suicide attempt.
The strange twists of love are looked at languidly and with strong emotion. It is a beautiful film.
