Mr. and Mrs. Wong, middle-aged couple, takes care of 20-year-old son with autism and lives in a small apartment in public housing estate. Mr. Wong works as a driving instructor and one day he starts an affair with younger woman. His wife is utterly devastated when she is left alone with all the responsibilities and single-handedly looks after son, who is incontrolable and sometimes aggressive. Embittered Mrs. Wong starts to plan a revenge on her husband's mistress but the alternatives road to self-realisation is within reach, only if main character is able to leave past behind and move on.
Chan Tai-lee as a director and script writer, focuses on social background and everyday reality of a lower middle class in Hong Kong. He draws attention to the issue of autism, depicting the way autistic people deal with daily life and the dilemmas of closest relatives, who take care of the family member affected. Chan draws a contrast between family and neighbour community, where main characters find understanding and affection, and external world that is not able to satisfy their emotional needs. Outstanding performances from three actors starring in main roles: newcomer Ling Man-lung, Ray Lui and Teresa Mo makes "Tomorrow is Another Day" a great example of social drama film.
Born in 1981 in Hong Kong, he graduated from the department of cinema and television at the Hong Kong Baptist University and then completed MA degree from Visual Culture Studies at The Chinese University of Hong Kong.

He remains a Pegasus Motion Pictures Limited principle script writer.
