"The Stolen Years" by Chun-Chun Wong (2013)

The Stolen Years
This young and beautiful woman goes first through amnesia, then Alzheimer, and then, after an unsuccessful operation, she’s paralyzed. Did I forget something? Oh yes!: euthanasia! But no worries: no matter what happens to her, she stays young and beautiful.
One of the worse scripts l’ve ever seen, and to add insult to injury, the movie is doted with a childish score!
Cast: Baihe Bai, Hsiao-chuan Chang, Ken Lin
Director: Chun-Chun Wong
Writers: Skipper Cheng, Silver Hau
Music by Henry Lai
