City Without Baseball director Scud returns to the helm for this semi-autobiographical gay drama focusing on the life of Ivan (Sean Li), who can't help wondering what might await him in the next life. Torn by his turbulent love affair with the handsome but straight Windson (Osman Hung), sensitive soul Ivan falls back on his friendship with Josh (Jackie Chow) while attempting to focus on the good things that life has to offer - such as his brother's wedding, and his newborn nephew. Later, Ivan grows concerned that his loved ones will be comfortable in the afterlife, and designs a permanent residence for them as Josh constructs a home for the unloved in the Dead Sea.
