    This is actually from a script. It's about a deeply spiritual/sentimental scene between a father and son in a dancing studio.

    This is the scene description:
    The line is: 两父子拇指相对,盖手印(后面连戏)。温馨。

    My translation was: Both father and son stand toe to toe, and press palms together (fade to next scene). Warm and moving.

    Have I understood the scene description wrongly?

    It's hard to imagine the exact actions because it must be somehow related to the story...
    拇指相对 means they point or press their thumbs towards each other's.
    盖手印 is to stamp using their fingers or palms...

    What does "后面连戏" mean?

    Does it mean:
    - "They continue performing after this." ? or
    - "Fade to the next scene." ?

    I might be wrong but this is how I interpret it:
    Father and son press their thumbs together as if finger printing (which links to a subsequent scene). Warm and endearing.

    I'm not sure but I can't see how this can be related to the word "fade".
    So no, I don't think it means "fade to something".
