Watch a scene from the film
A young woman who is lost and unwilling to let go of the past embarks on a midnight quest to Chinatown looking to turn back time to escape from the present. On this excursion she meets a mysterious woman from the past who is unbound to the rules of this reality. This elusive trickster figure crosses boundaries of time and space to whisper words of wisdom and plant seeds of hope — all the while, the young heroine desperately searches a path to her memories throughout a night of dream like illusions, swimming in the nostalgia, facing the truth of tragedy head-on and learning to let go.
