Suk Suk is a love story of two elderly gay men in Hong Kong. Park is a 70-year-old taxi driver who lives with his wife. His son is happily married with children, and his daughter is pregnant and about to be married. Hoi lives with his devout Christian son and family after his wife passed away. Other than spending time with his granddaughter, there is not much that Hoi enjoys in life. The two men, who have lived all their lives without revealing their sexual identities to others, run into each other by chance. After the first encounter, they begin to spend more time with each other and eventually fall in love. Hoi has been regularly attending meetings for gay men over the age of 60, and the attendees of the meeting plan to hold a forum to receive government funding for a senior center for gay men. Unfortunately, no one wants to volunteer to speak in front of a crowd.Suk Suk paints a delicate picture of the lives and issues of identity that two men face in their golden years. Carefully interweaving the issues of neglect and helplessness of elderly men with the problems of isolation and discrimination that inflicted on sexual minorities, the film captures with a warm gaze the joy of life, sympathy and solidarity, passion and suffering, and the subtle play of emotions they experience.
