What is life without a dream, even if it may well be the bumpiest of roads?

Uniquely talented high-school student Law Wing-sze (Chung Suet Ying) believes that writing Cantopop is her God-given talent, and is determined to pursue her dreams and make a name for herself. Yet, as hard as Sze tries to refine her lyric writing skills, handle rejection and draw inspiration from her personal experiences, nothing seems to go her way. Despite a series of failures, she’s not one for giving up on following her heart. Directed by Norris Wong (My Prince Edward), The Lyricist Wannabe is a heartfelt tribute to Cantonese lyric writing and offers universal insights into the pursuit of one’s dreams during youth.

The film was nominated for two 2023 Golden Horse Awards – Best Actress & Best Adapted Screenplay, and for three 2024 Hong Kong Film Awards –Best Actress, Best Original Film Score & winning the award for Best Original Film Song.
