DEAR TENANT 親愛的房客
For the past five years, Lin has looked after the son, Yo-yu, and elderly mother, Mrs. Chou, of his deceased boyfriend, Li-wei. To outsiders, Lin is merely a kindhearted tenant living in the rooftop flat above Mrs. Chou’s property. But to Lin, this is his way of remembering Li-wei — by continuing to be in the life he once had and loving the people he once loved. When Mrs. Chou passes away, her other son returns from overseas to discover that Mrs. Chou’s property has been transferred to Yo-yu, who has been legally adopted by Lin. He accuses Lin of killing his mother, sparking a police investigation that unravels Lin’s personal life and secrets.
