Pak is a 70-year-old taxi driver who lives with his wife. His son is happily married with a child, and his daughter is pregnant and about to be married. Hoi lives with his devout Christian son and family after he divorced his wife. The two men, who have lived all their lives never revealing their sexual identities, meet by chance in the streets of Hong Kong. As Pak and Hoi fall in love they contemplate a possible future together. Suk Suk studies the subtle everyday moments of two men about to enter their senior years as they battle between expectations imposed by Cantonese tradition and personal desires.
