YesAsia Editorial Description

Chapman To writes, directs, produces and appears in the critically praised drama The Empty Hands, starring Stephy Tang as a cynical young woman who rediscovers karate after her father's death. Stephy earned Best Actress at the 24th Hong Kong Film Critics Society Awards and her first ever Hong Kong Film Awards nomination for her portrayal of a quintessential Hong Kong girl who reluctantly finds purpose and reconciliation by learning to fight again. Legendary Japanese actor Kurata Yasuaki co-stars as her father and Chapman To as her unlikely mentor in this offbeat and atmospheric drama.

Born and raised in Hong Kong, Mari (Stephy Tang) was forced to learn karate from a young age by her Japanese father (Kurata Yasuaki), a strict karate teacher who ran a dojo in their home. She eventually quit the sport out of spite, and father and daughter never quite understood or communicated with each other despite living together. After her father passes away, Mari dreams of closing down the dojo and living off rent instead. Her dreams are dashed when she learns that her father left half the property to his former student Chan Keung (Chapman To), who suddenly shows up at her home after being released from prison. Chan Keung makes a proposition to the aimless Mari: if she is able to win a martial arts match, he will unconditionally return the property to her.

This edition comes with making-of features.

Half-Chinese and half-Japanese Mari Hirakawa is the daughter of a Karate coach. Since her childhood, she was forced under her father’s training, and has resented Karate for as long as she can remember - her only wish is to sell the dojo after her father pases away. Following his death, Mari starts fantasizing about her life of freedom; however, she finds out from her lawyer that her father has only left her 49% ownership of the property, the other 51% was left to one of his worst pupils, Chan Kent. The two clash, and Chan has a proposition – if Mari is able to win a match in a legitimate martial arts competition, her will unconditionally give her his share of the property. Mari is trapped in a dilemma, and will have to make a choice that will change her life….
