Twenty years ago, Charlie came to Hong Kong to work as a domestic helper. Not only did she leave her home country Philippine, she also left her husband and her six-year-old son.

Close to her retirement, she looks forward to going back home and living with her son again. However, her dream does not come true…
 
The Hong Kong parents devote so much to their children, but who is looking after the children of those overseas domestic helpers?

Chinese Opera Boy
 
Kit, a secondary school teenager, has been a Cantonese Opera fan since he was a kid. He is particularly fascinated by the "Flying Chair" technique performed by Master Fai. Kit is dying to become Fai's apprentice. However, Fai keeps on rejecting him and he feels reluctant to take apprentices and pass them his life-time skills. On the other hand, Kit's mother presses him to go studying abroad and give up Cantonese Opera. Reality seems to be against his way. Can Kit pursue his Cantonese Opera dream?
 
When your kids' goals are different from yours, will you respect their spirit to pursue their dreams?
