In this cinematic exploration of contemporary Hong Kong, the stories of people who engaged in rebellions in previous decades are reconstructed by young people who participated in Hong Kong's 2019 protest movement. These real protagonists are separated by time and history, yet their lives parallel and overlap.

Images flow between documentary and drama, blending archival materials, interviews and behind-the-scenes footage, weaving an expansive tapestry that encompasses these tumultuous eras.

How do the young people of this city envision their future today? What do they think about this seemingly unwinnable revolution? The memories of the older generations' historical experiences heighten the struggles of the younger generation striving to preserve their freedom today.
