Pak, a Hong Kong taxi driver, doesn't want to retire – one of the reasons being that his job gives him freedom. For example to try cruising in a park where he meets a man of a similar age, Hoi. Both men are grandfathers firmly embedded in their family structures, and they must carefully hide their sexuality. The random meeting grows from sex to a deep romance of their twilight years. But the price of a coming-out would be too high for both in this bittersweet, enchanting film with a star cast.
