Set in the Kowloon Walled City of 1960s-1990s Hong Kong, we observe Ming as he experiences the harsh realities of the world as a child, choosing between love and duty as a young man, and confronting the ghosts of his past in old age."

‣Chapter 1. A lonely child explores the extraordinary, unrelenting, and unforgiving world in which he lives. It is the only world he knows.

‣Chapter 2. A young dreamer, disenchanted with life, falls in love with a foreigner and learns that it can never be. He must always put his family before himself. He must be a good son.

‣Chapter 3. An older man must reconcile with his past as the walls that contained his memories and his home are to be demolished in the near future.
