Autumn Moon revolves around a chance meeting and an unlikely friendship between a teenage Hong Kong girl, Li Pui-Wai, and a male Japanese tourist, Tokio. In the film, Li’s parents and brother re-locates to Canada, leaving Li behind with her grandmother, who is an obstacle in the family’s emigration plans. Li spends her days skipping classes and wandering the streets. Meanwhile, Tokio arrives in Hong Kong looking for food, bargains and sex. Although neither Li nor Tokio is a migrant in the conventional sense, the theme of migration dominates their lives. When their paths intersect, an awkward relationship develops amidst broken English with which they use to understand each other. The budding friendship between Li and Tokio becomes an anchor for them in their search for self-identity in an alienating world inundated with clichés and indifference.
