"The physical movement and beautiful imagery… fully embodied the silence, tension and undercurrents within Paul Poon's script"

A new interpretation of leading HK playwright Paul Poon's acclaimed play. It depicts one couple's encounter on a remote island where their past and present overlap. As they ask the question "do we stay or leave?" a battle of wills unfolds that leads to a surprising and dramatic finale. Witty and touched with pathos, Poon's play is a compassionate yet skeptical take on enduring love.
