Tracey

Tai-hung (Philip Keung) seems to be living an ideal life with a successful business and a doting wife (Kara Hui). But when he learns that an old friend has died, he’s forced to come to terms with a secret that he’s been hiding all along – he’s really a woman trapped in a man’s body. Caught between his duties as a family man and his own destiny, he struggles to define the right thing to do.

Jun Li tells a powerful story of identity and acceptance with his directorial debut, a rare LGBTQ-themed drama from Hong Kong. Brimming with empathy and intellectual insight, Tracey is a trailblazing cinematic work from a society where transgender issues remain taboo or misunderstood. In addition to Ben Yuen’s brilliant Golden Horse-winning performance as an older transgender opera singer, longtime character actor Philip Keung gives a career-defining performance as a repressed soul.
