Soon after arriving in Argentina, Ho and Lai break up. Ho dissapears into the tango bars of Buenos Aires, turning the odd trick for pin-money. Broke and more upset than he realises, Lai takes odd jobs to earn money for his ticket home. Pestered by Ho, he slowly picks up the pieces of his life with unwitting help from Chang, a young backpacker from Taiwan. There are no metaphors, but the central motifs (parting and reunions, attempts to start over, irreconcilable differnces) have a lot to do with the mood of Hong Kong in the summer of1997. The film has exeptionally lyrical cinematography from Chris Doyle and a career-best perfomance from Tony Leung as Lai.
