Anna (Tang Wei), sentenced to prison for the murder of her brutal husband, is granted a brief furlough to attend her mother’s funeral in Seattle. On the way there, she meets Korean immigrant Hoon (Hyun-bin), who is making a living as a call boy. Both are outsiders – Anna as an outcast of her Chinese extended family, Hoon as a runaway from a  jealous husband. These two lonely souls suddenly find what they no longer dared to seek: a great love. But it’s not just Anna’s return to prison that looms – Hoon’s past unexpectedly steers their future together in tragic directions.

Late Autumn is a novel adaptation and remake in one and draws two fundamentally different characters, united in their disorientation. Late Autumn is great emotional cinema that moves beyond sentimentality and moves to tears.
