Investigation by experts and governing rulers concludes that the disease is linked to: loneliness. To fight the epidemic, the government imposes a firm grip on such feelings, and introduces a number of measures: new homes for patients who have recovered with new family members assigned to ensure a non-lonely lifestyle, in order for them to become integrated into the normal society again.

The Common Cold was adapted from an original novel by Hon Lai Chu, hailed as Hong Kong's own Kafka, in addition to receiving the top ten Chinese novels by Yazhou Zhoukan, the Recommended Prize in the Fiction Category at the Hong Kong Biennial Awards for Chinese Literature, the First Prize in the Medium-length Fiction category at the Unitas Literature and Fiction Prize for New Writers, as well as the China Times' top ten recommended original Chinese books award. Her writing fuses together imagination and reality, critically inquiring into the human living conditions. The Common Cold is also veteran theatre director Lee Chun Chow's first production for the Hong Kong Repertory.
