Bittersweet stories of Hong Kongers contending with nostalgia and an uncertain future give way to a comical documentary assault on sentiment. 
 
Two immigrant Hong Kong women – one from mainland China, one from Indonesia – live together in a little village. They join forces to undertake an epic journey to the big city. 
 
Brothers return to their working-class neighborhood for one last hangout in their mother’s toy store. With new responsibilities looming, they take refuge in childhood memories. 
 
A local economics teacher and a "native English-speaking teacher" from the States spend one school year crisscrossing Hong Kong. As they say goodbye, they recall their earnest contemplation of after-school snacks. 
 
A young barista and music-video star puts aside her many interests to run for district council. She fights both a pro-establishment incumbent and her own disdain for human interaction.
