Christmas Rose

Synopsis: Tim (Kwok) is a defence attorney with a heart of gold. Refusing to be simply a hired gun for his clients, he quits his high-powered job to become a prosecutor for the Justice Department. With the support of fiancee Megan and cop buddy Nam (Liu Kai Chi), Tim decides to start afresh. When he meets a handicapped piano teacher, Jing (Gwei), who urges him to help her. She is accusing her doctor, Zhou (Chang) a renowned surgeon of sexual harassment during a routine check-up. But with no witnesses and only their own conflicting testimonies, a Rashomon-like mystery unfolds. To make matters worse, Zhou's defence attorney, Freddy, is Tim's successor at his old law firm, and proves to be Tim's toughest opponent to-date. As a media frenzy encircles the case, it slowly destroys the lives of everyone involved.

As a defense counsel,

I used to help people clear their charges

As a prosecutor,

I can convict real criminals

Winston Zhou

Mr Winston Zhou,

at 18:

on October 31, 2012,

in Rm 3610 on 36/F

of Chinese Liaison Building,

you were suspected of violating Section 122

of Chapter 200 of the Laws of Hong Kong

by indecently assaulting

a 25-year-old piano teacher Jane Li

How do you plead, guilty or not guilty?

Not guilty

The Reagan Chan

case is as you have expected

He played victim

while duping small shareholders

Many employees lost their jobs as a result

What about Fortune Bank?

I just investigated for you

They deliberately misled

those small customers

into purchasing structured

investment products,

causing great loss to everybody eventually

I'm not going to take the Reagan Chan case

And I won't settle out of court

with Fortune Bank

How come you never accept certain cases?

I won't accept cases I don't believe in

Did you forget

I'm the master of your chambers?

Aren't you supposed to be liable to me?

I'm only liable to my clients

I can't think of

any chambers you can fit in

If our destinations differ,

we go separate ways

You should understand that

Patient Liu Cheng-on

Please go to Chinese Medication Room

to collect your medicine

Dad, what is it about?

Just leave the stuff here

Every time I called you,

you never replied

You could leave a message

I gave you a tie at your graduation

I wonder if it's still there

If there's nothing else, I better get going

But you only just came

Stay a bit longer

If I don't need to be hospitalized regularly,

would you still come visit me?

Ray Hung, the property developer

suspected of sexual assault,

is in court today

Details of the case

will not be made public till after the trial

Why don't you discuss it with Ms Chan?

If this trial continues,

Ms Chan's personal life

will be exposed

If the charge is changed to molestation,

my client will plead guilty immediately

We lawyers should not make

decisions for our clients anyway

Property developer Ray Hung

was in sexual assault again

2 weeks after his release

The victim is the plaintiff

in the molestation case

You told me to reduce his sentence

Now he's not scared

Is there a deal between you lawyers?

Aren't you obligated to protect me?

An attorney merely proposes

what questions

the defense counsel will ask you

You're well aware of my situation

You know how it would ruin me

"Rape Plantiff Commits Suicide"

Don't bring me any fruits next time

I can't eat sweet things because of my illness

All right


Is your dad alright?


Where are you going?

To Beijing

Have you forgotten?

Haven't we agreed already?

I'm taking my students

to Beijing this weekend

We're going back to see my parents

Have I said that?

Tell me, have you forgotten?

Since I've forgotten anyway, just stay

This song, Christmas Rose, is very difficult

Ms Zhao needs to learn it within a short time?

My boyfriend loves the song

I want to give him a surprise at the wedding


Thank you

Ms Li will teach you from now on


Just call me Jane

I'll be much obliged

Thank you

Nurse Lin, sorry for being late today.

Never mind


Doctor Zhou

During my last period,

my tummy hurts

Don't worry. I'll give you a checkup later

The nurse will help you change

Looks like you

prefer this dress to the other one

Let's order this one then

But I've decided to lose weight


You're already very skinny

I just quit Hill's Chambers

But don't worry

Tim, I know your greatest dream

is to open your own chambers

We have savings anyway

Use the cash. We can delay the wedding

If it's not enough, I can borrow from my dad

Opening my chambers or not doesn't matter

I don't want you to worry about my work

Nothing will affect our wedding

I want you to be my happy wife


What happened to you?

Any prescriptions, Nurse Lin?

It's only a checkup today

Thank you



I have to go

Didn't you want to see Tina

at Dr Zhou's place?

I don't want to go

I'm not feeling well.

Let's go back to the shop

Dr Zhou

Ms Law

Didn't we say we would leave together?

It seems that Jane is not feeling well

She wants to go back and rest

Oh, I see

Never mind. I'll give you a lift

Thank you

You are welcome

I've decided to join you

and work for the government

Being a court prosecutor just like me?

I went to the Legal Department

to be a prosecutor

As a defense counsel,

I used to help people clear their charges

As a prosecutor, I can convict real criminals

It suits me better


You still have to take the test this year?

Of course

I'm only one step away from being a lawyer

Good luck! Cheers!

Let me...

Sorry, Dr Zhou

Let me help you


Stay away!

I'll help you

What's with you?

Stay away!

Jane, what happened?

What's going on here?

Nothing, we're fine here

Miss, are you all right?

Should we call an ambulance?


Hello? Speaking...

What's the matter?

I'm Freddy Xue. Just call me Freddy

Winston Zhou

Let's cut to the chase

They will take your statement in a moment

But I want you to remain silent

Let's wait till you're released on bail

We'll have a meeting outside

and we'll give it further thought

We'll then give the police

a full statement, OK?

I'm innocent

I understand

How pretty

Looks better on camera than in real life
