Mak Kay stretches his Teddy Boy persona to a full-fledged villain in The Three Sisters. Adapted from a Commercial Radio airwave novel, the film tells the story of three very different sisters, all of whom terrorized by the same wicked scoundrel - the Mak Kay character. Mak goes from suave and charming to cold and nasty to downright evil and fiendish, putting the family of women to hell and back. He is in fact the personification of our fear of modernity, a dark side at once irresistible and apprehensible.
