* Frankly sentimental and sometimes outright implausible, Oliver Siu Kuen Chan's feature debut nonetheless charms with winning performances. -  Justin Lowe (Hollywood Reporter) 

Director Oliver Siu Kuen Chan's debut feature is the epitome of the genuinely genteel washing crassness away. -Don Shanahan (Every Movie Has A Lesson)  

Not only a heartfelt and genuine portrayal of a Filipino domestic helper's story, but also a tribute to those who refuse to stop chasing their dreams.- Richard Yu (Cinema Escapist)

Synopsis:  A paralyzed and hopeless Hong Kong man meets his new Filipino domestic worker who has put her dream on hold and came to the city to earn a living.
