Bends – Chinese Spotlight 2014

data-1Monday, April 28th, 2014 – 8:00PM

A prosperous housewife and her chauffeur begin an unlikely friendship amidst the pressures of Hong Kong society and the city’s increasingly complex relationship with mainland China. Each of the two face their own difficulties, the driver struggling to find a way to bring his young daughter and pregnant wife across the border from a bordering mainland province, even as he easily crosses the border chauffeuring for the housewife, while she tries to keep up the facade of her ostentatious lifestyle after the sudden disappearance of her husband amid financial turmoil.
