    • Synopsis
    • The Red House is a story about the endurance of love in the face of
      cultural upheaval, environmental neglect, and the universal process of
      aging.

      Lee and Jia are a couple in their sixties still deeply in love after
      twenty years. But when Jia has to return to her homeland to care for
      her aging parents, the physical traces of their years together are
      packed away. Their future together suddenly seems fragile.

      Jia finds the ancient city of her memories replaced by a disposable,
      fast-paced lifestyle. On his arrival Lee also feels lost in this
      foreign land.

      As the family crisis escalates, the couple strive to reconcile the
      uneasy balance of their love.
