Lam meets Mr. Worm, the chief of a lost-and-found company, and tasks him to find her lost lover Ted for her. Flashbacks show she was diagnosed as having leukemia. While recuperating she helps Mr. Worm solve a very hard case. Before she gets any worse, Lam decides to visit Ted's homeland in St Kilda, Scotland, to find where "the ends of the world" is. Along the way, she discovers more about herself and life than she was initially looking for.Written by
This is a beautiful little movie. Kelly Chen was very unappealing as a leukemia dying victim and one can't see what the other characters see in her in the movie. No matter, Takeshi Kaneshiro proved to be extremely endearing and touching as a simple guy who selflessly helps others and touched her life and made it worth living/dying soon for. Parts of it were kind of strange and goes no where but all of the little unfortunate characters were very meaningfully sketched too. The Scottish seaman was also effectively portrayed and although the scenes in Scotland seem not to make sense it illustrates that wherever you go, there is home. No matter where you go, you still find that you want to see the people in your own life.
