Storyline

The Suns are a typical Hong Kong family: May, forty something, works for a trading company; her husband, Bing, works as a low-grade civil servant, and Allen, their teenage son, is still at school. Trouble strikes one day when Bing's mother dies of a stroke, leaving her husband old Mr. Sun. Alzheimer's Disease is diagnosed. From that day on, the family's daily life is thrown into a poignant. Old Mr. Sun develops a tendency to wander off and get lost, he wakes up yelling in the middle of the night plus he is rude and disobliging ... all this, along with May's already full schedule as wife, mother and employee, drives her close to the edge of her endurance. The very last thing they all wanted has to happen: old Mr. Sun has to go into a Nursing Home. But it does not turn out quite like they expected... Written by L.H. Wong <as9401k56@ntuvax.ntu.ac.sg>

Toast to the heroine!
21 February 2002 | by (Tokyo, Japan) – See all my reviews

I was very impressed by a woman who is the heroine in this movie. She is very strong and brave, though she is always put in difficult situations to have to take care her father in law, who seized with Alzheimer's desease. At first she was treated badly by him in everyday life, but finally he seemes to trust deeply her rather than his own relatives. I think, but for her support to the family,there would have only been collapse in the family. Anyway this movie is one of my most favorite ones.
