Synopsis

In 1997, as Hong Kong changed hands from British to Chinese rule, Ruby Yang was present to document the transition. In addition to recording her own perspective, Yang gave video camcorders to three other young Hong Kong citizens: hardworking Qi Ke Jia who struggles with three jobs and college applications, Australian Louise Wong who is in town for the job opportunities, and slacker Ed Wu who tries to get by collecting "Star Wars" memorabilia. Together the four perspectives combine to form a portrait of a city on the cusp of an important transition.
