After a car accident which kills him, the wife and son of a taxi driver take in the injured prostitute he was driving.

Lost Indulgence (秘岸; mì àn) (also known as Lost, Indulgence or Lost·Indulgence) is a 2008 Chinese film directed by Zhang Yibai and written by Zhao Tianyu. Like Zhang’s earlier film, Curiosity Kills the Cat, Lost Indulgence takes place in the central Chinese city of Chongqing.

The film is a family drama about the relationship between a mother and son (Jiang Wenli and Tan Jianci) after the sudden death of the father (Eric Tsang).

Lost Indulgence navigated a complicated series of schedules and cancellations before it was allowed to screen abroad, at the Tribeca Film Festival in April 2008.

Plot

Upon the apparent death of his taxi-driver father (Eric Tseng), Xian-chuen (Tan Jianci) and his mother Li (Jiang Wenli) take in his father’s last fare, Su-Dan (Karen Mok), a bar girl, to fulfill the family’s obligations. The father, Wu Tao drove his cab into the Yangtze River, breaking Su-Dan’s leg and potentially paralyzing her for life, though his body was not recovered.

The son, a bereaved and sullen teenager, does not take to the crippled Su-Dan at first, his thoughts preoccupied with a school crush and the sudden death of his father. As time goes on, however he warms to her presence (and her ever-exposed legs). Su-Dan, restricted to a wheelchair sees the boy as a substitute little brother.

Meanwhile, Li, who works as a medic at a factory, is forced to work double shifts at a veterinarian hospital to help make ends meet. There she meets a handsome stranger (Eason Chan) who brings in his injured dog, and a tentative romance begins to form. [wikipedia]
