New Project Title:
 Love at Fifty

Synopsis: Lam Mui Kee, a kopitiam drink stall auntie re-encounters love in her 50s when a relief truck driver screws up her stern routine and delivers the wrong type of bread. Initially in denial of her fluttering heart, the divorced mother of two soon opens up to this fun-loving man who confesses that he has never been in a relationship all of his life. 

Director's Statement: We tend to associate romantic love with adolescence. The act of falling in love suggests foolishness and recklessness of the hot-blooded youths. What about our parents? What about people in their 50s or older? Do people stop allowing their hearts to change after a certain age? 

In this coming-of-age film (that is not in your typical age range), I’d like to examine the vulnerability of those who assume their lives are set just because they have passed the "age of exploration". In doing so, I hope people can open up their hearts, and see that love is still possible in your fifties, sixties, or seventies.
