A father and son attempt to reconcile after years of estrangement in this tender drama from gay Chinese filmmaker Cui Zi’en. Ray was raised by his grandfather, and spent much of his youth railing against his traditional father’s middle class lifestyle.
Upon enrolling in art school, Ray strikes up a relationship with another student, and the pair quickly becomes lovers. When Ray’s father discovers the two young men in bed together nude, he begins to better understand what it really means to be homosexual. But things get complication when Ray meets Bo, one of his father’s top employees, and falls hopelessly in love with the outwardly straight professional. Bo is engaged, and by becoming involved in a homosexual relationship he not only risks his professional livelihood, but persecution in his personal life as well.
