A Lifetime Treasure

(如珠如寶)

 

 

Synopsis:

Directed and co-written by Andrew Lam Man Chung, the comedy-drama A Lifetime Treasure sees five residents of a nursing home teaming up with their superintendent to thwart the efforts of a mobster who wants to take over and redevelop the facility. An impressive lineup of well-known and respected actors and actresses including Teddy Robin (who also is the producer), Louis Cheung (Keeper Of Darkness), Ivana Wong (Golden Chickens 3), Sammo Hung (My Beloved Bodyguard) and Lam Suet (Trivisa) are not only highly amusing but also give the audience a noble lesson on treating the elderly as a treasure.


In a peaceful elderly home managed by retired doctor Chief (Andrew Lam Man Chung) and nurse Ching (Wong) lives a group of five retirees: Teddy (Robin), a former professional pickpocket; Fatty Crab (Hung), a wheelchair-bound ex-detective; Uncle Lung (Leung), previously a spy for the British secret service; Richard (Ng), a former professional swimmer still saddened by his son’s death; and Wai (Tien), a retired Chinese opera actress. Their peace is about to be shattered when Chief’s old friend, the gangster Marvin (Lam Suet), plans to take revenge on him and tries to take control of the home…
