Taiwanese director Tom Lin (Starry Starry Night, Zinnia Flower) adapts Malaysian writer Tan Twan Eng’s Man Booker Prize-nominated novel into this elegant, star-studded drama about memory, loss and the art of gardening. After her retirement, former judge Yun Ling goes to the Cameron Highlands to write her memoirs. In the process, she remembers her time in a Japanese civilian internment camp during World War II and a promise she made to her late sister to build a Japanese garden at the family home. Despite her resentment towards the Japanese, Yun Ling becomes an apprentice under Aritomo, who was the Japanese emperor’s gardener before moving to Malaysia.

In 2011, Lai Chi-wai – one of the top rock climbers in Asia – lost everything when a motorcycle accident took away his ability to walk. Rather than succumbing to his fate, Lai found his own way of scaling those dizzying peaks again. With his second feature, Nick Leung offers a remarkable change of pace, eschewing the macabre humour of his debut Get Outta Here for an inspiring and touching tale about how a human being overcomes adversity. Featuring a career-best performance from Alex Lam as the wheelchair-bound athlete, this incredible fact-based story is a rousing tribute to Hong Kong’s never-say-die spirit.
