Synopsis 

Set in a realistic world, the film is a story of love, family, and the changes that transpire in people and places.  The film borrows the long history of its location to tell a story that is at once realistic and dreamlike.  Charting the soul-searching journey of its two protagonists, Cheung Lai-yee (Leila Kong) and Lin Jin (Lawrence Chou), to the Big Blue Lake entrenched in their memories, the film exquisitely and lightheartedly portrays the transience of people and places, while highlighting the permanence of love and family.  The two characters have done things they regret, but they finally find the strength to let go of the past and start anew.
