70-year-old taxi driver Pak (Tai-bo) lives a seemingly normal life and is happily married to his wife. Hoi (Ben YUEN), a 65-year-old retired widower, started to live with his devoted Christian son’s family after the loss of his wife. The two men, who have never revealed their true sexual identities, meet by chance in the streets of Hong Kong. As they fall in love with each other they contemplate a possible future together, but the shame that’ll fall on their families makes it exponentially more difficult, so hesitation strikes.
Ray YEUNG’s third feature Suk Suk is a wonderfully crafted, endearing film about a couple struggling to balance their personal desire and the conventional expectations of their families.
SPECIAL GUEST attendance: LO Chun-yip, actor.
