Set in far off Hong Kong, this film follows several people whose lives become interconnected. Paul is travelling the world to escape the memories of his ex-girlfriend and Hong Kong becomes one of his stops. Amaya is a charismatic woman stuck in a stereotypical marriage she cannot escape, and it is Paul who disrupts her boring daily routine. Both feel lost, and share thoughts and feelings about cultural differences and being uprooted in a strange country. Amaya and Paul are strongly attracted to each other and their encounter crucially affects their lives...a reflective film about finding one´s identity is influenced by Eastern film poetics. This film, with Japanese star Kaori Momoi in the leading role, was the Latvian nominee for Oscar selection in 2010.
