She’s going to take Wai Gong on the trip of a lifetime, to Blackpool – to the Tower Ballroom, where he always longed to go, to dance with his late wife Grandma Kam. To rekindle that love for dancing and to see if Wai Gong can find his mojo again. The only problem is – just how is on earth is she going to get him there?
