Q&A with actress Stephy Tang, who will receive the Screen International Rising Star Award
Japanese-Chinese Mari has long been forced to practice karate by her strict father (legendary Japanese actor Kurata Yasuaki). When he suddenly dies, she rejoices to sell the dojo and finally embrace a slacker lifestyle. But her dreams are soon dashed: 51% of the business has been left to his former student ex-con, who swoops in to reopen the dojo. Chapman To (Vulgaria) writes, directs, and stars in this offbeat drama, starring Stephy Tang in an award-winning performance as a quintessential Hong Kong girl who reluctantly finds purpose and reconciliation in learning to fight again.
