Mada is an insomniac taxi driver who drives the graveyard shift to ease his pining for his ex-wife. Lena has been constantly working around the clock for the past eight years to send money to her daughter and mother on the mainland. After a serendipitous meeting, Mada offers to become Lena’s chauffeur, setting the course for romance as they bond over their nightly drives.
Turning away from the bright lights of the casinos in favour of grittier working-class lives in her city, Macau-based director Emily Chan crafts an achingly humanistic love story between two wounded souls. Featuring career-best performances from both its stars, the film is also an important showcase of filmmaking talents in Macau.
