Hong Kong stage producer and actor Kearen Pang makes her directorial debut with 29+1, based on her own acclaimed one-person show about the experiences and mindset of women entering their thirties. From 2005 to 2013, Pang presented over 90 sold-out shows of 29+1 in Hong Kong, Beijing and Macau. She brings her signature work to the silver screen through a thoughtful nostalgia-tinged drama about two 29-year-old Hong Kong women, played by Chrissie Chau (Break Up 100) and Joyce Cheng (Special Female Force), and how they navigate life's decisions, disappointments, expectations and misgivings as they approach the big 3-0.
Marketing executive Christy (Chrissie Chau) has many of the worries common to women of her age group, like career pressure, nagging parents and a stagnant relationship. As she nears 30, she's suddenly faced with an onset of challenges and gripped with anxiety for her future. Born on the exact same day as Christy, happy-go-lucky Tin Lok (Joyce Cheng) has no career or love life to speak of, but she always seems to be optimistic about life. Before her birthday, Lok packs her suitcase and heads out to realize her childhood dream, while Christy moves into Lok's apartment by chance. When Christy comes across Lok's journal, these two women of opposite personalities begin to enter each other's worlds.
