After years of driving a cab to support his family, 70-year-old Pak has now come to the end of his career but refuses to fully quit his job. Escaping his domestic life by day, he continues to drive his taxi and cruises the streets of Hong Kong where he meets 65-year-old single father Hoi. The two strike up a passionate relationship, revealing the lives they have kept repressed amid the pressure to hide their sexuality and relationship from their families. But one late-night text message will threaten to throw their lives off-balance.

"One of last year's most memorable and beautiful love stories. "Twilight's Kiss" carefully considers the cultural sensibilities of Hong Kong's societal and family values to reveal a genuine, achingly loving, and rare portrait of coming out in one's twilight years. With great sensitivity and passion, Ray Yeung's film captures the beauty and pain of love's burning desire suppressed by social taboos and explores the (im)possibility of staying true to one's self and happiness." (Andrei Tănăsescu)
