Tracey (2018) Movie Script

It's been 25 years
Last night...
I had the same dream in
which I played with Ching and Jun in the lake...
...listening to the same music
The music which Ching liked best
Is that Mr. Tung Tai-hung?
Do you speak Mandarin?
I understand
Thank you
Anything wrong?
Ching has passed away
How sudden! An accident?
Do you want me to stay?
I'm okay. You go back to bed
Bowie, run, Bowie
Are you ill?
Hurry up...
Morning, mom
Hello, did you have fun?
- Let me
- Thanks
Do you want omelette or congee, like your dad?
Omelette! I'll shower first
Towel, Parti !
Mom, Bowie seems not well
Thank you, Parti
Tell her later her weekly day-off will be changed...
...from Sundays to Tuesdays
Aunt May saw her checking into Chungking Mansion
with a man last Sunday
It's an Indian from her hometown, with a beard
Parti is from Indonesia, not India...
They're all the same. I'm talking about men
I deliberately told her to go to the market yesterday...
...and rummaged her things in her room
You know what?
I found a full pack of condoms!
You rummaged Parti's stuff?
You were saying Parti made out with
a guy on Sunday, right?
Exactly! That's intolerable!
What if she's infected with those diseases?
Please, mom!
All human beings have sexual desires...
No! This is not permitted in this house!
I didn't expect her to have
any sexual desire when I hired her
- Eat! You'll be late!
- Yup!
- Let me call your dad
- He's giving me a ride
Regarding our plan to go to London in Christmas...
I have to double-check my schedule
Let's call it off
I was thinking of visiting a friend,
but he's just passed away
I was thinking of visiting some
university campuses
You must know your mom
doesn't want you to study abroad
My dorm application has been approved
I'll move out later this month
This'll save mom from rummaging my room
She's just cleaning up for you
Do you know she went into Parti's room
and search her stuff?
You know very well that she has mysophobia
She's simply sick in the mind
I have yet to mention that she's a racist
Good morning, Uncle Dong!
- Good morning
- Good morning, Chiu
Good morning. boss
Sorry for being late
Uncle Dong, Ann's nephew will come later
for a pair of glasses
Give him a good discount
- Sure
- Thank you
Uncle, did I hear wrong?
The boss was only a few minutes' late,
yet he apologised to us!
He's very gentle ever since he's a kid
You can find no boss like him nowadays
She's resigned
Is Dr. Chi in?
Why did he go to such dangerous places like Syria?
What's there to shoot but to be shot?
He's a war photographer!
D'you expect him to go to some peaceful country?
He's a typical Hong Kongese after all
Wherever one dies,
one always wishes to be buried back home
Dr. Chi , I'm off-duty now
- Sure. See you tomorrow
- Bye!
- Bye, Mr. Tung
- Bye
Isn't she hot?
I'll bet she'd be able to attract many patients
Make sure you won't be #Me Too-ed
Don't worry! I maybe a womanizer,
but I'm never a victimizer
I always parted with my girlfriends in good friendship
- Trust me
- You're shameless
- Hi , there
- Hello
- Where did you eat with Jun?
- We went to Yuen Long
That's far away!
Keep on practicing
I'd like to discuss something with you
I don't like our maid very much
Can we hire another?
It's up to you
In that case,
I'll ask my friends
in the troupe for some recommendations
The previous agency was no good
Are these Ching's photos?
Okay, I'll take a stroll with Bowie
How's Bowie?
Where is he?
The doctors are operating on him now
How come he passed out?
You should have taken him home if he's tired
Stop that
I tied him up on the sidewalk...
When I returned, he was already unconscious
You left him on the sidewalk?
Jesus! Why on earth did you do that?
I met a friend
I'll call sis
You'll wake her up. She's pregnant
I'll WhatsApp her
You never listened!
Ching, Jun!
Come over here!
What happened with that dog?
He's badly injured
Gross! Don't touch him!
He must have been bitten by other dogs or animals
Will he live?
Let's bury him
- Let's gather some leaves
- Why?
I once read that some animals,
like the elephants...
...will cover up their
dying fellow animals with leaves... a gesture of condolence
Hope you'll find yourself a good master
in your next life, Bowie
How do you know his name?
I don't.
The name of David Bowie just popped up
Isn't he your favourite?
I won't be going to school with you guys
for my open exam results
Why? Didn't we agree to go together?
My aunt recommended a job
at the restaurant for me
I've been working for 3 days
You're already helping your uncle
with his street stall...
...until 2 a.m . every night.
Do you have enough sleep?
You sure you'll give up university?
My sis is still in high school.
The priority for study should go to her
Any news from the police?
Have they arrested your dad's murderer?
They said the guy
might have escaped to the mainland
How about Graduation Ball? Are you going?
They're inviting the girls
from Sacred Heart and St. Paul's Convent
I'm still in mourning
You're betraying Ching and me!
We've always been The Three Musketeers!
Tai-hung will never do that.
We'll be best friends forever!
Right! Till death do us part!
How cheesy!
Let me drive you home first, Brigitte
May I stay with you and mom tonight?
Jeffrey has to be in court tomorrow.
I don't want to wake him
- How about your folate?
- I have that with me
Sorry for my poor Cantonese,
but I understand it well
What actually happened at the Customs?
I didn't realise Hong Kong is so backward
I was going through the Customs...
...and was holding Ching's ashes
A couple of Airport Security came up
and asked me what it was
I told them it's my husband's ashes
They immediately said that I wasn't allowed
to bring them into Hong Kong
Who did you say Ching was?
My hubby!
We got married in the UK.
Didn't you know that?
Then someone from the Customs
insisted they had to detain the ashes
I ended up in a fierce argument with them
I have lost Ching once.
I cannot afford to lose him twice
The guy from the Customs
took me into a small room ...
...and searched my luggage thoroughly
I showed them our marriage certificate
They said same sex marriage
is illegal in Hong Kong
I told them Ching was a Hong Kongese
But they insisted on proof for that
All Ching's belongings are in the UK
Why would his ashes be denied entrance
into his hometown?
Ching hasn't got any relative in Hong Kong
What kind of proof do they want?
Don't worry.
We'll find some lawyer to deal with that
Isn't your son-in-law a lawyer?
Gee, I was so shocked that Ching was gay
He was getting all the pretty girls in the world...
- ... leaving only the ugly ones for me
- Everyone has his own secret
Everyone has his own secret
- Did he make out with you?
- I diot!
It's all settled
- Shall we have dinner?
- I'm too tired for that
- I'll see you in the morning, then
- Deal.
- 9am tomorrow?
- OK
See you
Good Night.
- Bye Bye
- See you
See you
Let me call my son-in-law
Ok, Let's go.
No need to worry, dad
I've just contacted a Member
of the Legislative Council
He said it's just a matter of time.
We'll get the ashes back
Why the LegCo Member?
Because this has been a very hot issue...
...your friend's case can shed some light on it
But will this be appropriate?
Let's have a meeting with your friend first
Did you have a row with Brigitte?
She's been a little emotionally
unstable since pregnancy
Fair enough... Considering this,
and Bowie's situation
- She loves Bowie very much
- What's with Bowie?
Hello, Jeffrey... Sit
Why are you free?
I picked up a friend at the airport
He's not free for dinner
...half a century ago, he's known in Guangzhou... "Diva of East China"...
- Where's Brigitte?
- Let me find out
...Let's welcome Mr. Fa Yim-hung!
Brother Darling!
Here I cometh...
Mr. Cheng, which horse
are you betting on tonight?
My Fair Lady is a sure win!
Good luck to you
Take a seat first. I'll change into my uniform
Brother Darling!
where have you been?
The headwaiter was looking for you .
I told him you were in the loo
I've brought two classmates with me
- Serve them an extra dish
- No problem
Hello, are you Tai-hung's classmates?
Thank you
What's your favourite dish?
I'll get it for you
Cool! I'd like a shrimp rice noodle roll,
and chicken bun!
How about you? What's your name?
- I'm Ching
- And I'm Jun
Naughty Jun!
Want a Coke? I'll get you two bottles
Bro Darling, hot water please!
Coming! What's the rush?
Who's that guy? He's weird
He was a famous opera actor in Guangzhou .
He played female's role
Is he queer?
His stage-name is Fa Yim-hung.
But the nickname is...
- Brother Darling!
- Brother Darling?
He seems to like that
Peeper! Help!
I'll take a look
Sorry! Please forgive me
Softer! Thank you, Tai-hung
Are you alright, Tai-hung?
Bro Darling, this is Ching, my classmate
We've just introduced.
What a good-looking boy
What happened?
Bro Darling went into the ladies' room
and got beaten up
That's not the case at all
The cubicles in the men's room
was under repair for two days
I've been drinking almost no water, but still...
There's no one in the ladies' room.
So I thought I'd take a quick leak
And this woman just dashed in before I finished...
Why didn't you use the urinal?
I can't do that while standing!
I know what you're thinking
You are too young to understand
I'm actually a woman
Born with a male body...
I am actually a female...
Bro Darling!
Who was that old "qiandan" (drag singer)?
Old "qiandan" ?
You mean Bro Darling?
He's an old friend.
I knew him from the restaurant
where I was a waiter
He's almost like a teacher for me
Bro Darling? What kind of name is that?
It's a nickname. He's a great guy
Ching and Jun knew him, too
Is that so?
Brigitte has come to our house again
It's Gonorrhea! A venereal disease
How come?
Ask your fucking son-in-law!
Vincent! ...Sit down
When did that happen?
He said he was playing golf
with his friends in the Philippines
But why? You've been married for
less than three years
It wasn't the first time for that son-of-a-bitch.
Sis just didn't tell you
Shut up!
Are you sure?
You're the only one who's not sure
You aren't even sure
what kind of person that asshole is
- Vincent!
- Am I wrong?
In the beginning, it was mom who liked him
She liked him for his lawyer degree,
for the money he made
- What are you talking about?
- How could my sister marry him?
I married Jeffrey out of my own choice
What did Dr. Leung say about the baby?
Luckily, it's in the early stage.
The baby isn't infected
But I'm thinking of getting rid of it
But you just said the baby's fine
I learned about his messing around with women
soon after marriage,
I exposed his lies.
He promised me in tears he'd change
Things did get better for a while
But lately I've detected some traces again
I thought maybe a baby would help.
But I was wrong
Forget about abortion. It'll ruin your health
But I'm not sure
if I can raise a child on my own
You want to divorce?
- Is there any alternative?
- Shut up!
You must not divorce. I won't allow that
- Come on, mom!
- I'm not talking to you
You're pathetically pedantic!
There are only two choices for sis
Either divorce after abortion,
or give birth to the baby and divorce
Are you mad? Why insist on a divorce?
You don't just get rid of something
when it gets damaged
It's your generation that causes
all the chaos in nowadays' society
- My generation?
- Yes
- Do you know you're sick?
- Am I?
You wanna fire the maid
- because she made love to men
- What has this got to do with the maid?
- What has this got to do with the maid?
- I want to say...
- You're scared of VD, right?
- Of course
But that one who passed on his VD
to sis is your son-in-law
not the maid
I'm talking about my daughter,
not the maid
The maid has her human rights, too!
The maid has her human rights, too!
The truth is:
it's the privileged class like you who creates...
...all the injustice of this society.
Not my generation
- Are you accusing me?
- Vincent!
That's enough!
Enough? I've had enough, too!
This is ridiculous!
You must never divorce
You'll be left with nothing after divorce
How would you survive?
Aren't you tired after sex?
Males and females were created differently
Wow, what is this?
The theme of tattoo for a customer
She's very young and has a son in the primary school
Her first husband had abused her for 4 years
Her second husband loved her very much
but died from melancholia
She's heartbroken
and decided to tattoo this in memory of the latter
What are you doing? Take a shower and go home
You're disturbing my work
I'm homeless now. Can you give me a shelter?
You're my girlfriend after all
I must finish this tonight. Stop nagging
Why do you like tattoo?
There's no reason... My body belongs to me
I'd like it to be a canvas,
on which I can draw pictures... denote the different periods in my life
What will you draw to denote our relationship?
Where will you draw?
I think we've barely known each other for a year
But we've made love
for god-knows how many times?
- Come on.
- What are you doing?
Answer me,
have you ever made love on a tattoo couch?
- Many many times!
- Don't tell me!
- Many many times!
- Let's do it now!
I haven't been sleeping well since Ching died
I'd always wake up in two or three hours
You were rarely in touch with each other, right?
We were at different ends of the world all these years
How did you know each other?
Five years ago. In Myanmar
That was the year in which...
...Aung San Suu Kyi was released
and elected as a MP
I was thinking of a novel
with Myanmar as background
So I went to Rangoon for research
Ching was there for a magazine.
We stayed in the same hotel
You're a writer?
I published my first collection of prose
at 1 5 in Singapore
Then studied in Taiwan
I met Ching after my graduation
and went to the UK with him
Two years later, they passed the bill
for same-sex marriage and we got married
- Ching was very lucky
- I was the lucky one
You know... Ching loved telling me stories
of his younger days
Is that true? Did he say anything about me?
He said he had a crush on you
He said it was reciprocal
Nothing happened between us
He said you were avoiding him
Is fear the reason why you didn't come out?
I understand it was different 30 years ago
Is that why you used marriage as a cover-up?
It's nothing like that...
did you finish your book?
I had sent it to the publisher
before I left London
If things are smooth,
it'll be published at the year-end
It's a pity Ching won't be able to read it
Excuse me
It's my son-in-law
Hi , dad
Please sit.
Sorry. Didn't see you
- This is Bond... Jeffrey
- Nice to meet you
Nice to meet you
I talked to a Legislative Council Member
about your story last night
He's the first LegCo Member to come out in Asia
He's preparing a bill for
"Cremation Arrangements for Same-sex Partners"
He's very interested in your story
This sounds great
Indeed we should raise
more public awareness in this issue
How about this?
Can you recount what happened in detail?
- Excuse me. Bathroom first
- Sure
Did Brigitte say anything?
She wanted a divorce
I still love her very much...
- Don't tell me this
- Can you help me
You must restore her trust in you
Can you still walk? Exhausted?
How many floors to go, Bro Darling?
Easy! I have to climb these stairs
a few times each day
Certain things require perseverance
Help yourself
I don't understand.
That year after I returned from Sichuan...
...why on earth did you disappear?
My uncle won a lottery and opened an optical shop
I became his assistant...
...and quit the restaurant
Please forgive me for not saying goodbye properly
Don't be silly. After all, this reunion is proof...
...that we're destined to cross paths again
And you? When did you
stop working at the restaurant?
More than 1 0 years ago. I'm too old and slow
But no worries. I'll survive
Luckily there're people
who still remember me as an actor
It gives me so much pleasure to perform
What a surprise that your wife's also an actress!
She sings very well
She's called Anne. She's an amateur
Any kids?
A son and a daughter
With a family and a career,
you must be a happy man now
I'm not sure
One's destiny is not for one to decide
How time flies!
We're now almost at the end of our lives
I got this Guanyin pendant
from a high monk in Sichuan
I had intended to give to you as a gift
But you left
Guanyin is formless and asexual,
sometimes male and sometimes, female
This is a female. Suits you
Thank you very much
How have you been, mother? How's your appetite?
I'm fine. It's nice of you to come
I missed you. Just wanna see you
Too bad I can't see...
Is Vincent going to the UK soon?
He can never make up his mind
Is it expensive?
It's affordable
Excuse me. It's a little messy...
Don't feel too bad
You know?
We were talking about adopting a kid...
...after he returned from Syria
We'd take him to places...
We had even thought of his name
Who'd have known...
...he'd come back in such a way...?
These people said ...
One of them said ,
"I've never seen the ashes of a homo,"
...and ordered me to open
the urn for him to take a look
Why must we have to call for lawyers
and senators and journalists... reclaim the dignity
that's been denied from us?
You're very brave
No, I'm not...
I'm very tired!
Ching hasn't left us
He's still here. I can feel it
What's that?
- What can I do for you, sir?
- I'd like an examination
Look at the brightest spot. What do you see?
A road
A deserted road , long and endless
How about you? What do you see in my eyes?
What exactly are you running from?
Well, Mr. Tung, thank you
This is where Jun, Ching and me...
...often played when we were young
You swam in nude?
They did . I didn't
Very youthful
Ching is the first man I fell in love with
And most probably the man I loved most in my life
He loved you, too. I know
But I cannot see...
...where the problems lied
when both of you loved each other
You're like that everyday?
You intend to spend the rest
of your life like that?
My life is coming to an end
How old are you?
I've seen queers coming out at 50...
...and gang-bang everyday till they're 70 or 80
I'm not gay
Fine. So you're not gay
Tell me. Do you love your wife?
Have you ever realised
you're hurting your wife and kids everyday?
Have you ever realised you're just being selfish
Stop thinking yourself a tragic hero!
You're just a masochist...
...who sees himself as a victim
I am a woman
What's this shit?
Not on the outside...
...but deep inside
Are you a transsexual?
I sensed that I was different from
other boys at an early age
At first I also thought I was gay
Until there was this time...
I realised at that moment...
...the least thing I ever wanted Ching to be...
...was him being gay
I loved him . But in my fantasy...
...if we're together,
I was always the girl, and he, the boy
I detested my body
But there's no way to get rid of it
I had to look at it and touch it everyday
It's so repulsive
I didn't know how to tell others
Even if I did, no one would understand
Ching would
He's passionate about life
He would have accepted you. He loved you
It's too late now
Nothing is too late
There are many things you can still change
I'm destined to be a man
The day before my matriculation
results were announced... father was killed by a thief on the street
It was a big blow for my mother
My sister was very small
I became the only man in the family
I had to quit school and work.
I was left with no other choices
Even my wife was picked by my mother
When my kids were born,
I actually felt grateful
I was convinced that this is my destiny
That's not true. You're just deceiving yourself
If there's nothing you can do about it...
...why wear female underwears?
When there are things you cannot obtain...'ll start looking for a substitute
Like whenever I take a leak...
I'll use the cubicle, sitting down
Ever since I had my own shop and private office...
... I started to secretly
change into women's panties,
and at times, corsets...
...during the day, and change back before home
That's that!
You can opt for an operation
Your kids are grown-ups now
I'm already 51 . Why should I do that?
Why not?
If you can live to 80,
there're 30 more years to go
I'm serious
Each of us is responsible for his own life
Parti took your suit to the laundry.
They found this in your pocket
They're presents for mother
Those are women's panties
I paid a visit to Bro Darling, the old actor
Seeing that he's kind of deprived,
I bought some cloths for him
Turns out he's a transvestite
So I ended up buying these for him, to cheer him up
I was so embarrassed upon payment
I know what you have in mind . I never did
Did what?
You should know better.
I never had another woman since we married
I wish you had
Don't be silly
- Did you read the news?
- What?
Ching, your buddy, liked men
I've just learned that
How about you? You don't like women, do you?
Elaine's husband told her a couple of days ago...
...that he had been living with a man for years
- Elaine who?
- The one who plays old men's roles in our troupe
I'd look for a guy if I were her husband
Relax. I'm not gay. I'm alright
If you are alright...
...does it mean it's me
who isn't alright all these years?
No. We are both alright
I promise. I'll take good care of you and the kids
Hubby, you're finally home
We have to part now. Thank you
Thank you for everything
Do you have anything to say to Ching?
Ching, you're the pride of The Three Musketeers
Please forgive me
Come on, cheer up
Let's have a toast
For Ching!
- Thank you
- Don't mention it
Now that I can finally speak my mind...
Honestly, the first time you said
Ching was your husband ...
... I was really shocked
Being gay is no big deal!
There's really no need for Ching
to be so secretive
Indeed! Although you were buddies... don't seem to be very honest to each other
What do you mean?
I always recounted my amorous adventures
to my two buddies... every single detail
Tai-hung is the most candid of us three
I know everything about him
Oh, shit! Did you really make it with Ching?
Go ahead
Go ahead what?
I simply couldn't find the words to tell you
Sorry, Jun
I'm fine
Comparing to you guys, I just feel...
...fucking shallow
I was supposed to be the most open-minded...
...but I turned out to be the dumbest!
What a fucking dumb ass!
Let me take you to see someone, Jun
- Who is it?
- Bro Darling? Bro Darling?
- Tai-hung? The door is unlocked
- I see
Bro Darling!
Recognise him?
Jun! Naughty Jun!
This naughty boy has grown into a hamshop man now
Bro Darling! Long time no see
Sit down first...
Sit down...
Don't rock him so hard
- I'm so thrilled
- Sit down ...
Let me introduce. This is Bond
Hi , Bro Darling. I'm Bond from Singapore
Ching was my husband
He's the hubby of our classmate, Ching
They got married in the U .K. , you know...
- You're being naughty again
- I'm always serious
You're so cute! Gosh! So cute!
Can't help being handsy, right?
- My turn now
- Come on!
Tai-hung, you, too.
...Come on, everyone!
- Tea?
- Thank you
These are very old pictures. You mustn't laugh at me
Wow, very precious photos! Autographed, too
Do you know who she is?
This is Hung Sin-nui .
She's like the Hong Kong Barbara Streisand
He's too young to know that
She came to watch our performance
and took this photo with me
I was in heaven!
There's more...
Bro Darling, you're such a beauty!
You're simply stunning
What a sweet talker at your age!
Where is the suitcase
with all those beautiful costumes?
You mean my dress container?
I've sold most of my costumes
This is my favourite role,
Huo Xiaoyu in The Purple Hairpin
Bro Darling is a real character!
Agreed. Such a nice person, too
Life is being unfair to him
Is he the same as you?
A trans
I bet he'd never heard of the word
I've got an idea
What's that?
What is it?
What is this? I hope you're not making fun of me
Bro Darling,
we're going to make you into a real darling
Presenting the modern version of Huo Xiaoyu!
Isn't this fucking great?
- Watch your tongue!
- My tongue is fine
Bro Darling!
Close your eyes
I guarantee you'll be a true beauty
in 30 minutes' time
How about you? Wanna try?
Come on! You probably won't have
another chance like this
I'm sure you'll be a sweetheart
to both men and women
Hello, Jeffrey... Sit
Why are you free?
- OK
- I picked up a friend at the airport
Tai-hung, I'll go pee
I can finally use the ladies' room
Your friend passed out in the toilet
- What
- Your friend passed out in the toilet!
Bro Darling?
Are you alright, Bro Darling?
I'm fine
Help! Help!
Taxi? Any taxi? Taxi?
Quick! Quick! Quick!
Go to the bar down there. We need help!
Go to the bar down there.
Make way for the taxi! Watch out!
Watch out!
taxi ! taxi ! taxi ...
Here! Let me... watch out for his head
Go help...
Watch out for his feet!
watch out...
Queen Mary's Hospital, please
Tai-hung, get into the car
Get into the car, Tai-hung
It's all my fault. I shouldn't propose to do this
I'm too capricious
It's not your fault
There's no denial that Bro Darling
really enjoyed himself tonight
I hope I can be like him , die with a big grin
Reply his messages. You're making him suffer
He's the one who's making me suffer
I don't even know how to face him
What's the fuss? He's just in drag
What if he's gay? What should I do?
Being gay and in drag
are two entirely different matters
And besides being gay,
there are other possibilities
Please don't further complicate things
Straight people can be transvestites
Some may be transgender.
There's nothing wrong about it
If my mom finds out any of those things
you've mentioned... true of my dad, she'll go nuts
My family will fall into pieces
So you don't even let him tell his story?
I don't want to know anything about it
Didn't you use the rainbow icon
as your Facebook profile?
So it's alright for others to be gay,
transvestites or transgender
Yet if any of these is true of your family members,
it's prohibitive
Please stop pressuring me!
- I'm very disappointed in you
- Come on!
Go away!
Come on, go home and take a rest
I'll deal with the hospital formalities tomorrow
Let's go, Tai-hung
Be sensible. Move
I can't go home
Why? Of course, the way you look...
Come to my house and change
I saw Vincent
Did he see you?
His son
Tai-hung, Sorry!
Who's that? Vincent?
Why don't you turn on the light?
It's me, Tai-hung
Go back to your room
Do as mom said. We have things to talk about
Over there, Anne.
- Let's talk
- What?
- Let's talk
- It's not necessary. I've known
You won't know
A couple of days ago...
I'm very tired.
You sit down and listen to me.
I don't wanna listen
Listen to me!
A couple of days ago you asked me a question
I'll give you the answer now
I don't wanna listen. I was just curious
I must tell you now
Don't say it. There's no return for that
I want to be a woman
I am, in fact, a woman!
I've always wanted to be a woman.
Don't you know that?
You're sick. It's okay.
We'll go see the doctor tomorrow
Go to bed now.
Everything'll be fine in the morning
- Don't say anything
- I am not sick
- Stop!
- I am not sick
I put on this dress and make-up tonight...
I felt totally myself
I've been deceiving you
and our kids all these years
I've been deceiving the whole world
I used to wake up in the middle of sleep
when we first married
I told you I had sleep apnea
But it was my nightmares
They continue to haunt me till today
I've suffered so much, Anne
I suffered, too
I'm your wife
It's been more than 20 years.
You thought I didn't know?
Let's just spend the rest of our lives like before
Please don't do that. Please!
- Please don't do that.
- It doesn't work anymore
I want an operation
Are you mad?
Please let me do it, Anne. I beg you
I'm sorry. Give me a chance
- You really want to be a woman?
- Yes!
How about this? You'll play woman on odd dates...
...and me, man, on even dates. Will that do?
- No.
- Please don't do that to me!
- Yes. Please don't do that
- No.
Listen! I want to be a total woman
I want a divorce. I want to lead a new life
A new life? How about my life?
You're just being selfish. What about my life?
Sorry, Anne. I'll treat you and the kids well
I don't want your money.
How can I walk out of this house?
How do I face the neighbours
and the members in my troupe?
- All this shame!
- Don't do that to yourself. Sorry
How do I explain to others
that my husband is a woman
Do you really want a divorce?
- Do you really want a divorce?
- Yes
No! Give it back to me! Give it back to me!
I will never agree to a divorce
"Seven months later"
How much does it weigh?
7 lbs 4 ounces. Born at 4:45pm. Taurus. Here it is
- It's porno! He's naked !
- Shut up!
It's so cute!
Congratulations! Cheers, grandma!
Stop calling me that. It sounds so old
Alright! Cheers anyway!
Are you going to the hospital? I'll go with you
I'd rather not. I don't want to upset Anne
It's Brigitte who sent me the video
You had given up all your properties to her
Women are obnoxious
Don't say that! I'm a woman, too
sorry, sorry
I won't blame Anne
I'm not in a position to blame her

are contaminated by all these...
...rotten values of today's society?

Excuse me
But it's so simple, Mrs
You still awake?
I'll go to bed now
I'll drink with you
This is the first time I'm drinking with my son
Wow! It's very strong!
There's always this feeling of loneliness
after each performance
I gave dad a ticket. Was he there?
How is he?
He's fine
- He may have to wait for another year...
- Don't tell me
He'll come home after he's had his fun
I'll wait for him
It's not a matter of fun.
It's futile for you to wait
After his gender is changed into female
on his Identity Card...
...your Marriage Certificate will be cancelled
Me waiting and his coming back
or not are two different matters
You must think I'm getting old ...
...and have fallen out of times
I just wanted to be an ordinary housewife
Why force me to accept this?
Mom, I'll promise you...
... I won't argue with you again
I'll never use the F-word...
Never dye my hair, nor take drugs, smoke grass...
Never meet any girls, nor play with myself
No more love-making. I'll be a very good boy...
It's killing me!
"Another seven months"
What a great photo
You were so good-looking
Farewell, Tung Tai-hung!
We're all proud of what you are!
Thank you
Miss Tung, we have to close this place now
Thank you
- Hungry?
- Yes
I'll take you to a nice restaurant
Help yourself
High-heel shoes are awful!
Sorry, no comment
Do you know, I always twisted my "chai" (ankles)
when I first learned to wear high-heels
- You don't know the meaning of "twisted chai"?
- No idea
Cantonese are very naughty
"Chai" refers to the dick
So "dark chai" means the dick of a black man ...
...and "wasted chai" means an impotent person
It really hurts
Why do you keep two pieces of "chai" here?
- Give them back to me
- Okay
Bad boy!
Alright, I'll tell you
The doc told me I have to
keep exercising the vagina
Otherwise it'll grow back together
- Does it hurt?
- A little
It's a lot better than after the operations
Why two pieces?
The doc asked me what size do I prefer
I told him, "All sizes!"
- What are you laughing at?
- Why hit me with that?
To tell the truth,
I do have the feeling of a hard-on at times
But when I feel it down there...
... I know very well I'm a woman
Do you find it disturbing to have
that hard-on feeling?
It was very embarrassing in the past
But it feels pretty amazing now
The doc said I should learn how to
communicate and love my body
It's feels nice
Is was a wonderful.
What are you doing?
Do you feel like a man or a woman?
A woman
Are you sure?
I'm sure. I'm also sure Ching will do the same
And you?
Mother, watch my make-up
Let me touch you once more
Male or female, you're always my child
Don't cry
Mother knows you have had a difficult life
No one can blame you
It's just like what your father said...
One must learn how to find one's peace of mind
I understand, mother
I'm no longer called Tai-hung
What your new name?
I've adopted yours, Chui-see (Tracey)
Mother, let's take a stroll
Tell me, where did you pick up
the name of Chui-see?
Your grandpa had two wives
My mother was called Chui-ting.
My step-mother, Pui-see
I'm the eldest daughter.
Grandpa didn't like daughters
So he just picked a word from each wife's name... be my name. Hence, Chui-see,
What a misunderstanding!
I thought you're a progressive gal!
