Return of the cuckoo trailer 2 opens 12 nov in sg
Return of the Cuckoo (Traditional Chinese: 十月初五的月光, literally "The Moonlight at the 5th of October [Street]", also known as 澳門街, literally "The Streets of Macao") is a 20-episode TVB drama broadcast between July 2000 and August 2000. It was originally produced to be a sitcom, however later edits made the production into a regular drama.
The movie version of Return of the Cuckoo was released in the Fall of 2015. It is a continuation of the story where the drama left off.
As a child, Man Cho (Julian Cheung) was rendered mute as a result of the cruel actions of his mother and was adopted by the kind-hearted Ah Kiu (Nancy Sit). Man Cho grew up with Ah Kiu's daughter Kwan-Ho (Charmaine Sheh), and the two eventually develop romantic feelings for one another. Man Cho is extremely self-sacrificing, has an inferiority complex due to his disability, and therefore feels unworthy for Kwan-Ho. Ah Kiu is also against their relationship and things are further complicated when Szto Lai-Sun (Steven Ma) enters the picture after falling for Kwan-Ho too.
