What if you wake up one day to find out that everything that you’ve ever known or believed about your life never existed?
That’s exactly what mystery thriller “Pali Road” will set out to do – to throw its audience into that predicament.
Named after an actual scenic “Pali Highway” on Oahu (known for its strong spiritual connections and ghost stories), the movie explores a personal disaster experienced by lead character Lily who wakes up from a terrible car accident only to learn that she’s living a life that she can’t remember.
The official synopsis for “Pali Road” reads:
“Pali Road” is a mesmerising and chilling journey into the mystery of the human psyche and the power of love. Lily (played by Michelle Chen), a young doctor, wakes up from a car accident to discover she is now married to her boyfriend’s affluent rival, Dr. Mitch Kayne (played by Sung Kang), has a 5-year-old son, and an established life she has no recollection of. Everyone around her, including her parents, deny that her boyfriend, Neil (played by Jackson Rathbone), ever existed, sending her on a desperate search for the truth. Determined to reclaim a life everyone insists is nothing more than an illusion, Lily eventually begins to doubt her own sanity. Struggling to overcome her seemingly hopeless situation, Lily endures a series of unexplainable and haunting incidents while bravely making her way to an ultimate mind bending truth about the power of true love.
“Pali Road” boasts an impressive cast which includes Taiwanese actress and singer-songwriter Michelle Chen, who is best known for her leading role in the 2011’s “You Are The Apple of My Eye”, as well as Korean-American actor Sung Kang, whom you may remember for his recurring role as Han in the “Fast & Furious” film franchise.
