Work

Made in Hong Kong

Made in Hong Kong stems from questions asked by men born in the 1980s: How hard do they need to work in order to achieve independence by the age of 30?

Also, is the society moving too fast or are they moving too slowly? Perhaps they need to look at things from another angle so they could feel like they are living, not merely surviving.

Despite the growing influence the younger generation has on the society, values of young people are often radically different from the older generation. People shall not turn a blind eye to such conflicts and complexities. The work bridges the generation gap from a new and relaxing angle, where audience can think and enjoy.
