Huace Pictures and CG Cinéma’s upcoming sci-fi production is set to star the popular Chinese star Jackson Yee alongside Shu Qi, a Taiwanese actress and model, in lead roles. Titled ‘Resurrection’, the feature film explores the theme of resurrection except the being that undergoes a resurrection is an android! When a woman’s consciousness lapses into an “eternal time zone” during a surgical procedure, she becomes trapped in several dreams wherein she finds an android corpse. Attempting to wake it up by telling endless stories, the woman eventually succeeds and the android’s senses return. The rest of the movie will focus on how this android will wander with these stories that belong to the woman and adjust to this unexpected resurrection.
