“Since her teenage years, Chung Chun-Tao, known as Ah Tao, has worked as an amah—a servant—for the Leung family. Now, after 60 years of service, she is looking after Roger, who works in the film industry and is the only member of the family still resident in Hong Kong. One day Roger comes home from work to find that Ah Tao has suffered a stroke and Roger comes to realise how much she means to him. . . .”

Based on real events and winner of Best Film, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Actor, and Best Actress at the 31st Hong Kong Film Awards, A Simple Life tells the story of a relationship that was at once ordinary and extraordinary.
