Maleonn was both inspired by his father Ma Ke, a renowned Beijing opera director, and hurt by his absentee parenting. Now a mid-career artist himself, Maleonn has dedicated the last few years of his life to putting on a theater play, constructing an elaborate “time machine” that can restore Ma Ke’s ailing memories in a fight against Alzheimer’s. This extraordinary father-son relationship is full of tears but also of joy and magic.
