Synopsis:    Although 15-year old Wing is bounced around in foster homes, he forms a genuine sibling relationship with 9-year old Hoi Lam and the mentally challenged Chi Yan. They are cared for by Chi Yan's grandmother who heads up this makeshift family. Occasionally full of teen angst and bordering on delinquency, Wing nevertheless showers Hoi Lam and Chi Yan with brotherly care. Cheerful Ho Lam dreams of reunion with his mother. Wing, more world-weary, ends up transferring to a youth hostel. In their brief days together, the trio formed a true family bonded by love instead of blood.

When two boys are left home alone with Grandpa going about his usual business in antiques and collectibles, their improvised ball game results in the breaking of a precious vase. Sly big brother attempts to lay the blame on little brother, by hook and by crook, but Grandpa is as savvy a collector as he is a guardian.

Duration: 27 mins
Language: Cantonese|Chi & Eng Subtitles
Synopsis:    With so much prestige and value attached to English in Hong Kong, it’s little surprise parents go to extraordinary lengths to give the best language education for their children. In comes the perfect solution: a learning kit that promises a head start in life, a two-in-one answer to a growing kid and a frustrated stay-at-home mom. Its only downside is the price tag – a hefty HK$53,000! Will our couple succumb to pressure sales tactics – by turns forceful, subliminal and persuasive – ignore their better judgment and rise to the bait?
