After taking two lovers on a journey through Beijing in Lovers On The Road, independent filmmaker Jessey Tsang brings that journey of discovery home with her sophomore film Big Blue Lake. The story of an actress returning home to redeem her past sins, Tsang shot most of her exquisite drama at her home village of Ho Chung, a small, quiet rural area that is rarely seen in Hong Kong. A director of both narrative and documentary films, Tsang cast professional actors like Leila Tong and Lawrence Chou alongside real Ho Chung residents in the film - including her own father - to enhance the realist nature of the film. One of the most acclaimed Hong Kong independent films of 2011, Big Blue Lake has been screened at film festivals around the world, and Tsang was nominated for the Best New Filmmaker award at the Hong Kong Film Awards for her work. Lai Yee (Leila Tong) returns to her quiet rural village home in Hong Kong after an attempt at a career in Mainland China ends in failure. Having spent many years away, Lai Yee is shocked to discover that her mother (Amy Chum) is showing early symptoms of Alzheimer`s, and her siblings have moved away. While she struggles to readjust to the village life, Lai Yee`s former classmate Lin Jin (Lawrence Chou) comes back into her life. Together, they explore lost memories, a chance at love, and the mystical Big Blue Lake that will give them courage to start anew.
