Stephen Fung, Cherrie Ying, and Tang Yifei are trapped in the nightmarish world of Virtual Recall! Based on the best-selling novel "Symbiosis" by Lam Wing Sum (writer of Magic Kitchen's original novel), the film from director Cheung Hoi Ching (Devil's Vindata) is a psychological thriller with an eclectic mix of mystery, romance, and the scientific concept of the parallel universes. Besides Stephen and Cherrie, the incredible universe of Virtual Recall is also populated by fellow Hong Kong actors such as Sammul Chan, Samuel Pang, Mandy Chiang, Tin Kai Man, and Simon Lui.
Fortunately, it doesn't take an Einstein to make sense of the plots. Psychiatrist Dr. Xiao Tingqin (Tang Yifei) has taken in a mental patient named Shen Liushuang (Cherrie Ying), a beautiful woman who claims to have special powers. In her treatment of Liushuang, Tingqin begins to encounter a series of inexplicable happenings. Meanwhile, Tingqin's marriage with senior cop Zhen Shanlin (Stephen Fung) is on the rocks when she finds out about his affair, which somehow is connected with the mysterious killer hot in her pursuit. As Tingqin finds herself fallen under the control of Liushuang, the only way to break free from her endless nightmares is to escape through the "wormhole" into an alternate reality!
