Plot & Details

Fulltime Killer and Mad Detective director Johnny To shifts gears from the usual action fare for his forty-eight feature film, a romantic fantasy about a student athlete who won't let death keep him from the woman he loves. Dong (Taiwanese pop singer Vic Zhou) was a handsome student athlete who suddenly lost his life while playfully chasing a car driven by pretty coed Yan (Li Bingbing). Three years later, Yan is a rising law clerk defending a brash young client who bears an uncanny resemblance to her late love Dong. As Yan findsw her memories drifting back to the time days before Dong's death, grief begins to take hold and the spirit of the deceased athlete returns to accomplish some unfinished business.
