Jintong is a senior-level civil servant. She longs to commit herself unreservedly to her same-sex relationship with new Chinese immigrant Jackie, but is hampered by fears she refuses to admit. When beautiful memories of her teenage years return to haunt her, how can her sassy mother help?

Secondary school Math teacher Vicky falls in love with her male student. Is she trying to fill a vacuum in her marriage, or is she just trying to flee from a past she can never return to?
One has a heart tangled up in knots while the other is hiding a secret. In what time and space will the paths of Jintong and Vicky meet?

On invitation by Macau's Cultural Affairs Bureau, Drama Box's Artistic Director, Kok Heng Leun held an Asian Theatre Master Class in Macau, setting the ground for this co-production by Drama Box and the Cultural Affairs Bureau.
