Synopsis:  Ah Tao, who was orphaned during the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong, spent her entire life as the live-in maid of four generations of a Chinese family, is now looking after the only family member still living in Hong Kong. He is Roger, a movie producer.  According to late Roger Ebert:  “A SIMPLE LIFE is one of the year’s best films, which is content to regard these two inward people as they express love and care in their quiet ways.”
