Film description

For years, Bill's greatest passion and profession was crafting neon signs using traditional methods, recently replaced by cheaper LED lights. When he dies, his wife Mei-hsiang decides to step into her husband's workshop and continue his legacy by finishing his last project. Can she and Bill's apprentice revive the iconic sign that has been lighting up the city for decades?

Starring in the debut of director Anastasia Tsang are two icons of Hong Kong cinema, Sylvia Chang and Simon Yam. The result of their cooperation is a tale portraying a part of the city's history from an unexpected point of view. "A Light Never Goes Out" is not only an intimate love ode and a delicate poem about the city long known for the neon signs flooding its streets with characteristic, deeply saturated colors. It is also a nostalgic tribute to the great craftspeople whose professions are rarely remembered today.
