Macao, early spring days. Mada, a divorced cab driver affected by amnesia, meets Lena, a young moonlighter with a painful past. Their meeting will bring some color to their dull lives.  Tenderness embraces this film of nighthawks surviving in a city anchored in nostalgia. Considered one of the most beautiful love stories that Cantonese cinema has given since In the Mood for Love.
