The final screenplay by the late cultural icon Julian Lee is finally brought to life by director Kit Hung (Soundless Wind Chime, 33rd). Based on Lee’s own fight with cancer, the film follows an emotionally harrowing journey endured by young gay photographer Alex, after he is diagnosed with peritoneal cancer. Abandoned by his brother and his on-again, off-again lover, Alex is forced to face his mortality and the loss of his sexual identity through sheer resilience. A devastating, but ultimately hopeful story of survival and resolve.
