Description

A young doctor wakes up from a car accident and discovers she is married to another man, and living a life she can’t remember ever having. Her search for clues to her “past” life will lead her to question everyone around her and her entire existence, demanding a leap of faith (“pali” means “cilff” in Hawaiian) to find the truth. Starring Chinese superstar Michelle Chen; Jackson Rathbone (Twilight); Sung Kang (Fast Five); and Henry Ian Cusick (The 100, Lost). Winner of the Special Jury Awards for cinematography and for lead actress Michelle Chen, and a Lifetime Achievement Award for Sung Kang, at the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival 2016.
