This short film is created based on a true story. During the Asian Financial crisis at the end of 1997, the music recording industry was experiencing a downturn. Having spent the first half of his life as the producer in the music industry, Thomas got fired from his job and was rejected when applying to be a security guard at the cemetery. He decided to move to Taiwan in search of a new lease of life. Before departing, he sold all the vinyl records from his longtime personal collections. In the summer of 2017, during his brief return to Hong Kong, Thomas revisited a second-hand vinyl record store for the first time in 20 years. As the protagonist and the city of Hong Kong are both on the verge of entering middle-age, can they rediscover their true self?
