Habit, which is produced by Ho and her husband Conroy Chan under their 852 Films banner, is directed by Janell Shirtcliff and written by Suki Kaiser. It is based on a story by Shirtcliff and Libby Mintz that follows a street smart party girl with a Jesus fetish who gets mixed up in a violent drug deal and finds a possible way out — by masquerading as a nun. Ho and Chan recently returned to Hong Kong from Paris with speculation that they picked up the COVID-19, but recently tested negative.
