TWILIGHT'S KISS is an award-winning sensitive drama that studies the subtle day-to-day moments of two men as they struggle between conventional morals and their personal desires in their twilight years.

Despite years of societal and personal pressure, Pak, a 70-year-old taxi driver who refuses to retire, and Hoi, a 65-year-old retired single father are proud of the families they have created through hard work and determination. Yet, when they meet, something that had been suppressed for so many years is unleashed in them. As the two fall in love, they contemplate a possible future together.

The film paints a delicate picture of the lives and issues of identity that the two men face. It captures with a warm gaze the joy of life, sympathy and solidarity, passion and suffering, and the subtle play of emotions they experience.


"Director Ray Yeung demonstrates a keen eye for the social dynamics that impact us and how we respond to them, and finds space to bask in the simple pleasures, basic generosity and the safety net that is family while simultaneously dealing with homophobia, ageism and faith." — The Hollywood Reporter
