Synopsis: After losing his two-year-old son, Lei begins a 15-year-long quest in search of his missing child. On his way, he meets Zeng, a young car mechanic who was abducted as a child himself. Shot in arresting widescreen lensing by cinematographer Mark Lee Ping-bing (longtime collaborator of Taiwanese director Hou Hsiao-hsien), LOST AND LOVE is a lyrical road drama that examines the problem of child abduction in China, while the two protagonists develop a father-son bond that never turns over-sentimental.
