Beautiful yet naïve Lee Kay arrives in New York to continue her studies and re-connect with her boyfriend. Lee’s charming and streetwise cousin Sam Pan helps her with the culture shock, and acts as an emotional support. Brilliantly capturing the colours and contrasts of 1980s New York, this charming comedy – premiering in a 4K restoration – offers a delightful start to the Chinese New Year.
