Serving countless newlyweds in Hong Kong’s one-stop-shop of cheap wedding supplies doesn’t exempt Fong from feeling the social pressure to marry. Since reluctantly nodding to her boyfriend Edward’s proposal, she has been pushed beyond her limits by unaffordable housing, archaic customs, and intrusive in-laws. And just when she thinks things couldn’t get more hectic, she’s faced with the reappearance of Shuwei, her husband from a sham marriage from whom she thought she was divorced.
A dramedy with a critical eye pointed towards the ins and outs of marriage, My Prince Edward is a poignant and playful look at finding independence in a society that wants you hitched.
