“Recently, we have heard this word ‘HongKongers’ a lot in the news, it has become a favourite phrase by journalists who report on the Region. But what does it mean, exactly? This film invites us to explore this question through a story between two generations, the grandson and the grandfather. If you are interested in this topic, perhaps you should also catch another film which will be added to this programme soon - Echoes of the Rainbow. Both films talk about how the older generation of immigrants have been contributing to the Region”
