Jasmine is a gripping and chilling psychological thriller about a man, Leonard To (Tobin), still struggling to come to terms with his grief nearly a year after his wife’s unsolved murder. Hoping to move on with his life, Leonard reconnects with Grace (Yuan), a woman from his past, and his outlook begins to brighten. But, when a visit to the site of his wife’s murder leads him to a mysterious interloper (Mann) he believes is her killer, Leonard decides to take justice into his own hands and things take a startling turn toward the unexpected.
“Words can’t really describe just how excited I am to be seeing the film on the big screen”, added Lian.
Jasmine is a powerful passion project that speaks to anyone who has ever loved and anyone who has ever suffered,” said actor and producer Jason Tobin.“The result is a touching, chilling, and mind-blowing feature film that will creep into the hearts and minds of moviegoers worldwide and stay there. This isn’t one of those films you forget about five minutes after you’ve left the theater.”
