Tens of thousands of Hongkongers, still living in the shadow of the 2019 protests, are immigrating to the UK to forge a freer future. This film documents their struggle to break free from a homeland that is no longer welcoming, while holding on to the Hongkonger identity in which they find purpose. In exile, can the Hongkonger identity persevere, or is it destined to obscurity? Can they really find a place to call home?

This film had it world premiere at the 13th Taiwan International Documentary Festival, Nominee for TIDF Visionary Award. It was selected for the Asian Competition at the 14th DMZ International Documentary Film Festival
