Out of the Shadow


Chu Po is a sprightly teenage girl with a strong sense of justice but her mother, Tao Kuen Ying, would rather they keep a low profile in the fishing town of Tai O. However, people are in need and Po decides to take action after learning a little karate. She soon becomes an internet heroine but keeps it a secret from Tao until she gets in over her head when she comes to the aid of Pastor Hung and his handsome son, Man Chun, who find their church is the front of a drug ring. This is when Tao reveals a secret crime-fighting history of her own.

Ricky KO, director of Time (2021, OAFF2022), delivers a playful vigilante film, complete with laughs, fighting, Cantonese humour, and a touch of family drama unfold in the beautiful setting of Tai O. Despite the humour, the message has some moral messages: that one must do the right thing, help others and also know when to seek help. [Jason MAHER]
