At the 14th year of consecutive production, Cathay is bringing back a half-century classic in mandarin play history 'Sunrise' -
A Socialite Lady CHEN Bai-Lu is meeting her childhood boyfriend FANG Da-Sheng, who has travelled far from the countryside in hope to bring her back. But only for him to find his once lover is now trapped in the luxurious yet depressing way of life. Despite feeling disgusted about the people around her, she kept mixing with them for her high life.
Orphans to Prostitutes, Clerks to Bankers, Gangsters to Godfathers, everyone around her from different class are struggling to survive in their own way. It was the darkest moment before dawn at the 1930 Shanghai.
