TIME

殺出個黃昏

Youth is certainly wasted on the young in Ricky Ko’s TIME, a thrilling tale that follows an aging, once-famous hitman, Chau, who is abruptly fired from his job as a noodle chef where he failed to keep up with the fast-paced, new environment. Retreating back into his cut-throat, old ways due to his unemployment, Chau rejoins his old gang-a getaway driver with an emotional and unhealthy relationship with a sex worker and a loney fixer who now sings for a nightclub and struggles to connect with her family-to revive the life of trading cash for corpses.

But when the group discovers a woman who calls a hit on herself, hoping for euthanization due to extreme pain and daunting medical bills, they soon realize that everything’s changed. Despite this and Chau’s refusal to carry out the mission, more aging and dying clients call on their services. And Chau and his gang comply. That is, until a young teen calls a hit on herself after her parents abandon her, which leaves Chau as her surrogate grandpa. With thrilling action sequences and a stirring relationship between a unique family, TIME reinvents what it means to be a part of a caring community.
