“In Your Dreams” is the winner of the second First Feature Film Initiative (FFFI) awarded by Create Hong Kong (CreateHK) of the Commerce and Economic Development Bureau. It is an “odd couple” student-teacher romance written and directed by TAM Wai Ching (“The Little One”, 2012; Winner of the Best Creativity Award (Student Division) at the Fresh Wave 2012 International Short Film Festival). Veteran actress/producer Carina LAU (“Days of Being Wild”, 1990) plays an insecure and diffident teacher who tolerates her philandering husband; while NG Siu Hin (“She Remembers, He Forgets”, 2015) plays the teenage student who has an emotional attachment to a mother figure.  The film also features CHANG Suk Ping William (11 time winner at the Golden Horse Awards for Best Art Direction and Editing) as the consultant on editing; CHOI Sung Fai as the cinematographer and award-winning art director Tony AU as the consultant on art direction and costumes.

This is a poignant love story between two lonely-hearts. One is a 16-year-old boy (NG Siu Hin) who lives with his drunkard father; and the other is a home room teacher (Carina LAU) who lives with her cheating husband. The two seek solace and affection in each other's company.
