YesAsia Editorial Description

We leave in order to return. Writers-directors Yan Yan Mak (Butterfly) and Clement Cheng (Gallants) held this value close to them for Merry-Go-Round, a visually lush urban drama about going home and finding your roots. Commissioned by Hong Kong's premier charity organization to commemorate its 140th anniversary, Merry-Go-Round follows three lost souls in an emotional story that spans generations and continents. After extensive research, Mak and Cheng chose to set their story in a "coffin home" owned by the organization, which houses coffins before family members can have them shipped for burials in their hometowns.

Led by Ella Koon (The Shopaholics) taking two roles in a commanding performance, the film's eclectic cast also includes Nora Miao (Way of the Dragon), Teddy Robin (Gallants), Lawrence Chou (Truth or Dare: 6th Floor Rear Flat), and Denise "HOCC" Ho. Cinematographer Jason Kwan (Love in a Puff) brilliantly captures the allure of Hong Kong and the seaside coffin home with gorgeous images that complements the melancholic acoustic score by Hong Kong independent musician Ketchup. Merry-Go-Round was also one of the two closing films at the 2010 Hong Kong Asian Film Festival.

Running from her family, terminal illness patient and drug addict Merry (Ella Koon) goes to Hong Kong from San Francisco to look for her internet friend Allen (Lawrence Chou). After being ignored by Allen, Merry wanders her way to the seaside Tung Wah Coffin Home and gets a job working for Uncle Hill (Teddy Robin), the home's caretaker. Meanwhile, Allen's aunt Eva (Nora Miao), a Chinese medicine shop owner, also makes her way from San Francisco to Hong Kong to ensure that Allen doesn't sell the family's medicine shop in Hong Kong. In her hometown, she begins to remember her love affair decades ago with a businessman's son (Lu Yu Lai).

Blu-ray Edition comes with directors' commentary and The Story behind Merry-Go-Round.

However, the one she ran into was an ill-tempered old man, who lived as a recluse at Tung-wah Coffin Home. A Chinese herbal physician, who had been staying in San Francisco over decades, decided to return to Hong Kogn when a deed was delivered by courier to her. The owner of a traditional herbal shop in Hong Kong, was a lad who hated to carry on his family business. He came to himself on account of three women. The world changes so swiftly, things we were once familiar with could just vanish in no time. A chance encounter with strangers could bring new horizon to their lives. You can always acquire a new life regardless of your age. You just have to believe.
