Review, by Lisa Nesselson

Lai Yiu-Fai and Ho Po-Wing were in love when they arrived in Argentina from Hong Kong. But something went wrong while they were driving south in search of adventures. One day, on the road, Ho Po-Wing walked away from his lover. Now Lai works as doorman at a tango bar in Buenos Aires. He is trying to save enough for his air-ticket home. When Ho re-enters his life, bruised and bleeding from a beating, he gives him a bed but refuses to get back into a sexual relationship. Domesticity doesn't suit Ho, who is soon spending nights out on the town. Lai quits his job and starts working in the kitchen of a Chinese restaurant, where he befriends Zhang, a kid from Taiwan. Without realising it, Lai's Iife begins to take changes. Meanwhile Ho continues to fall into pieces...
