Cinema Love

In Mawei, China, there was a cinema where gay men met in secret, their forbidden love expressed and cherished in dark, dingy rooms. But tragedy came, and three of those connected with the cinema found their way to New York, where twenty years later, they meet again, the past still haunting them. Tang expertly weaves his characters’ stories across the continents and years, threading in other supporting actors to create a complex tapestry of sorrow, struggle, joy, and redemption.
