A paralyzed and hopeless Hong Kong man meets his new Filipino domestic worker who has put her dream on hold and came to the city to earn a living.

Together, they learn about how to face the different seasons of life.
Hong Kong newcomer director Oliver Siu Kuen Chan proves to be a natural master of storytelling with his award-winning debut, a dramedy about the cultural clash between a cranky man confined to a wheelchair and his Filipina maid. Named Best New Director at both Asian and Hong Kong Film Awards, the director brilliantly exercises precise levels of entertainment, with a delicate, humorous and heartfelt story of humanitarian values. Pointing to immigration issues, loneliness, unsolved family matters, struggles of the minority and the motivational power of oneself's dreams, it delivers top-notch performances from the entire cast, in a special blend of good laughs and heartbreaking moments.
