Hong Kong has been going through one of the toughest periods in its history as a result of social turbulence and the COVID-19 pandemic. Director and visual artist Anson Mak invites three local artists who are also parents—performing artist and district councilor Clara Cheung, political comic artist Justin Wong, and writer Cheung Yuen-Man—to genuinely share their stories regarding the notion of fear. How do young parents feel? What do they think about fear, their kids, and the future? Their artworks also powerfully respond to political unrest and personal innermost emotions, as this film in itself.
