He was afraid to enter the morgue, but he needed to speak to her one last time. He lied to the police about her death.

It was a traumatic time for Kwok-fai: she committed suicide in the next room while he was asleep. He’s bombarded with questions, gossiping relatives, and the overwhelming burden of having to perform the last rites as the only male descendent.

The more people gossip, the more Kwok-fai reassesses his relationship with his grandmother. He asks his mother the reasons behind his grandmother’s passing.

Even though he’s not ready for it, Kwok-fai has to learn an extremely painful lesson of growing up.
