YesAsia Editorial Description

An elderly father ages backwards in the fantasy comedy-drama Shed Skin Papa starring Louis Koo and Francis Ng. Hong Kong theater veteran Roy Szeto, who turned Tsukuda Horihiko's award-winning play Nukegara into a successful local production in 2011, adapts the story again for his directorial debut about a father and son retracing life's steps together in magical manner. Also co-starring Jessie Li (Port of Call), Krystal Tin (Trivial Matters), Jacky Cai (Paradox) and Chen Kuan Tai, Shed Skin Papa screened at the 29th Tokyo International Film Festival, and it earned Francis Ng a Best Actor nomination at the 36th Hong Kong Film Awards.

Struggling director Tin Lik Hang (Louis Koo) feels his life falling into a downward spiral after his mother (Jessie Li) passes away. His business goes bankrupt, his wife (Jacky Cai) wants a divorce, and he gets entangled with an ex-lover (Krystal Tin). Furthermore, he has to take care of his dementia-afflicted 79-year-old father Tin Yat Hung (Francis Ng). One day, Yat Hung begins to shed skin. Every day he sheds a layer of skin and becomes a decade younger! As Yat Hung ages from his sixties to eventually his teens, he and his son get closer and closer in age and in their relationship. They revisit past memories and experiences together, and Lik Hang gains a new understanding of his father and the struggles he faced at different ages.
