Permanent Residence

Permanent Residence explores, in complete abandon and full nudity, the life story of a young man who pursues an impossible love with his straight boyfriend and contemplates on the mortality of his loved ones. Permanent Residence exudes a deep understanding and sensibility towards the important issues involved in loving, living and dying.

permresid01 (1)Ivan is an IT professional who works hard and has no time for dating. The young man is forced to come face-to-face with his sexuality when Josh  from Israel asks if he is gay during a television talk show in which the two are guest speakers and a life-long friendship begins.

After entering the gay world, Ivan meets Windson, who professes to be straight. A curious friendship blossoms between the two involving many episodes of nude wrestling, swimming, embracing and sharing a bed. Though apparently attracted to the free-spirited Ivan, Windson insists on limiting their relationship to nothing more than kisses and fondling.

When Windson announces he plans to wed his long-time girlfriend, Ivan is devastated and sets off on a journey of discovery that takes him from Israel to Thailand to Australia and finally back to Hong Kong.

“Permanent Residence” has a touching plot that deals with life, death, love, friendship and betrayal.
