A phone call from a stranger; abandoned household items; an old newspaper cutting that reveals an unfulfilled wish – Ming tries to cope with life after her mother’s death but realizes that the past constantly echoes and that grieving knows no bounds.

Autobiographical and based on real life events, Linger touches on the theme of loss, grief and self-salvation. It depicts the process of grieving that a daughter and her father have to go through in the event of a sudden loss. As both characters grieve in their own ways, they are forced to face their regrets and eventually, each other.
