Lilting is a touching, intimate film about finding the things which bring us together.
Set in contemporary London, a Cambodian Chinese mother is mourning the untimely death of her son, when her world is suddenly disrupted by the presence of a stranger. With no common language they struggle to connect. Gradually, with the help of a translator, they piece together memories of a man they both loved dearly - and find solace in their grief.
