脫皮爸爸 SHED SKIN PAPA
(To Be Released)

Drama

Story:

(Based on the play "Nukegara" by Norihiko Tsukuda)
Troubles keep piling up for washed-out movie director Tian Lik-hang. His wife wants a divorce, his film company is bankrupt, and his mom has died. Worse, he must now take care of his 79-year-old dementia-ridden father, Yat-hung. And then dad begins to shed a layer of skin every day, each time making him look ten years younger! With dad approaching the same age as his son, the two bond at the football stadium where they used to spend their weekends. Dad even helps frighten off the thugs who corner Lik-hang over his debts, and charms both Lik-hang's wife and his ex-lover. The son gets to know a father he had forgotten, one who struggled to make a better life for his family. Lik-hang also has the opportunity to have one final meal with his mother, before returning to his reality with passion anew to revive his own career and marriage.
