[ TORONTO INTERNATION FILM FESTIVAL ]
    Tung has just been dismissed from the mental hospital where he's spent the last few years suffering from a severe form of bipolar disorder. He is not cured; his illness is one that can at best be managed. Once a successful financial analyst, Tung lost his job due to a nervous breakdown, and no one is willing to hire him back.

    Tung's father is less than happy to have him back home in his tiny single-room apartment. A truck driver who must often travel to China, he's overcome with worry whenever he has to go away, leaving Tung and his medication regime unsupervised. During these periods of solitude, Tung is either at the mercy of nosy, narrow-minded neighbours or, worse, left alone with the ghosts of his past. That past is the source of rifts and resentment between father and son, and its invisible presence may suffocate them both in this claustrophobic shared space. Soon, though, the hostile world outside the apartment presents a whole other set of difficulties. - GIOVANNA FULVI

The Miriam Yeung Chin Wa and Shawn Yue Man Lok starred LOVE OFF THE CUFF (CHUN GIU GAU JI MING) released its original soundtrack, which included Chin Wa's remake of her idol Danny Chan Pak Keung's WHEN I THINK OF YOU. Chin Wa moved Lok Jai with her sincerity to sing 4 verses and work on the music video together. Lok Jai asked Chin Wa to repay him. At her next Hong Kong Coliseum concert she would arrange for him to try the stage elevator, but after the lift he would leave. He absolutely would not perform.

Lok Jai said that when he found out Chin Wa wanted a model to take his place for the shoot, he thought no model could replace him so he took the role himself. Chin Wa also got to save money. Chin Wa cracked up.
