), the prolific director also wrote, produced, and even acted in his latest comedy, about a wild hunt for an ancient treasure. Continuing her long-awaited big-screen comeback, Cecilia Cheung stars as an ad director trapped on an isolate island with an incompetent action star (played by Ronald Cheng) and a group of adorable kids.
