Former financial analyst Wong Sai-tung, who suffers from bipolar disorder, is released from a mental hospital into the care of his estranged father.

The two struggle to come to terms with Tung’s illness and also a horrible incident involving Tung’s mother that scared them both. With his father’s help, Tung makes a gradual return to society. But society is not so eager to take him back. With startling honesty and realism, Mad World tackles the subject of mental illness in Hong Kong and asks how people – ill or otherwise – can seek change.
