In Hong Kong in the 1990s, three twentysomethings search for love--and learn that they must find themselves first.

Chow Jeoi is a lingerie saleswoman who is desperately in love with a married man. She is willing to wait for him, despite her own loneliness--and her increasing uncertainty at the approach of her thirtieth birthday. Fashion model Chui Yuk will do anything to support her boyfriend's dreams of being a writer, even risk her own career. And law-firm secretary Yau Ying feels lost within her relationship, which, after seven years, lacks passion. Together these adventurous young women will navigate romance and betrayal, personal growth and independence, perseverance and disappointment. And after every heartbreak, through laughter and tears, they will be there to lift one another up.

A bittersweet portrait of love, loss, and the triumphs and pains of entering adulthood, Hummingbirds Fly Backwards speaks to a unique and timeless kind of love: friendship.
