Summary
  Adapted from the hugely popular novel by Japanese writer, Banana Yoshimoto, the location has been moved to Hong Kong. Orphaned at an early age, Aggie is brought up by her grandmother. When she dies of old age, she retreats into a world of her own, sleeping on her grandmother's kitchen floor and not uttering a word. Louie and his club hostess mother Yim Wa take her in and she takes up residence in the kitchen. Under their care Aggie gradually returns to normal and understands life from a different view due the death of a relation. The trio form an unconventional but warm relationship, but the sudden loss of Yim Wa shatters Louie's world and makes Aggie experience the same kind of pain Aggie feels. The couple form a fragile relationship based upon this understanding. [ Next Magazine]
