In this sparkling romance, Ruby, a Chinese American toy designer from LA, visits Hong Kong for the first time on business. Finding herself stranded, she meets Josh, an American expat who shows her the city. Meandering through nighttime streets pulsing with energy and possibility, they fall into a winding and carefree conversation, buoyed by an undeniable attraction. Just as things start to look promising romantically for the pair, the night is stopped short by a surprising revelation.
“A delightful, honest look at personal connections and the trouble with timing.”
– Rob Hunter, Film School Rejects
Pre-Screening Live Music from JE Sunde 6:30-7:00pm
Before striking out on his own, Jon Sunde spent years making beautifully unusual music with The Daredevil Christopher Wright. In 2014 he released his first solo album, Shapes That Kiss The Lips Of God, with Cartouche Records out of Davenport, IA. With a love for the craft of the singer / songwriter and an admiration for artists such as Nina Simone and Leonard Cohen, he tries to write honest songs that feel good and hopefully aren’t excessively derivative. In this endeavor he has, at times, been more and less successful.
