Despite life's setbacks, a father returns as a young man - This incredible transformation will surely change our beliefs and values
A comedy about family values by Japan's celebrated playwright Tsukuda Norihiko directed by multi-talented Hong Kong director Roy Szeto
Having just endured his mother's death, losing his job, and his wife requesting a divorce, a man at the end of his tether brings his father, plagued with Alzheimer's disease, to the bathroom and falls asleep. When he awakes, he finds only his father's shed skin. He then discovers his father has grown younger by 20 years, and in the following days becomes increasingly more youthful, altering the filial relationship forever.
Written by Tsukuda Norihiko, a popular television dramatist, Shed Skin is a moving story that brings us closer to understanding the modern family and love!
