Romancing in Thin Air
Genre: Drama, Foreign, Romance
While onstage to receive an acting award, Hong Kong screen god Michael Lau proposes to his mainland co-star, Yuan Yuan. At the paparazzi-packed wedding reception, however, the bride runs away with her first love, coal miner Zhang Xing. Michael hits the bottle, and has the unlikely coincidence of tumbling into the back of a truck bound for the Himalayas, where Shangri-la is mythically located. At a hotel, he is nursed back to health by owner Sue and the local doctor. Michael discovers that although Sue is absorbed with mourning her husband, who disappeared into the nearby forest seven years ago, she has been a closet fan of his.
