Synopsis The swimming team is deflated after its captain, Tin Heng, passed away tragically. However, a reserve of the team, Gei Yuen, works his way up in hope to represent his captain in competitions and to boost the team's morale. His mind may be focused on Tin Heng whom he idolises, but he cast his watchful and silent infatuated glances on Tsz Suen, Tin Heng's girlfriend and member of the girls' swimming team, who remains aloof and even apparently nonchalant about her boyfriend's death. Gei Yuen originally thinks Tsz Suen is dismissing her emotions to mask her sadness. However, he finds out that she is harbouring a secret...

Remarks shared after Festival visit


"I met many filmmakers from Iran, and we talked about the censorship policy in China and Iran. It is good to see that how a developing country spends its resources to make film festival."

Shared by Edith Chong, director of Someday We'll Know, after attending Dhaka international film festival in USA, under the sponsorship of NAE.


"It was a very inspirational trip. We visited local film school and got to know more about Poland film industry. I met some local polish filmmakers and they had shared with me the experience of making film in Poland."

Shared by Edith Chong, director of Someday We'll Know, after attending Five Flavours Film Festival in Poland, under the sponsorship of NAE.

“This is the third time that the DC Chinese Film Festival in Washington has been held by the committee. In general, a large number of Chinese-language films was screened, and a wide variety of themes was also covered. The location of the venue was great. The audience was mainly Chinese in the United States, yet it would be better if the festival could also absorb more local Americans as the audience. This year's film festival had featured a variety of Chinese films, which enabled the US-based filmmakers and audience to appreciate the excellent film productions in recent years, at the same time the directorial symposium did also enable the audience to better understand the origins of film production and Director's idea. As the whole, I think that the trip to this film festival has allowed me to have a better understanding of the people who worked in the United States, and I had a new perspective on my films. I also took the opportunity to talk with Chinese directors working in the US to learn about their work environment and introduce them to the development of the Chinese commercial film market. This festival is still in its infancy. Most of the staffs working in it were volunteers, but they were very diligent. I do really appreciate a lot.”
