It only takes a day for the river to freeze three feet deep?

An ordinary man meets a hysterical woman. A random exchange and an instinctual touch suggest a relationship that seems illusory, perhaps not.
Is this a game of chance or a trajectory of fate?
Jon Fosse, praised as Norway’s new Ibsen, etches the intimacy and alienation between human beings with a poetic touch. Following the success in directing The Man Next Door and The Office, HKRep company member Yau Ting Fai returns to helm this play about the tenuous relationships of urban dwellers.
