This film consists of four stories about Hong Kong. An intrepid domestic worker from Indonesia wisely guides her aging but energetic elderly charge on a deceptively circuitous outing. In a nostalgia-purveying toyshop, two twenty-something brothers retrieve fragmented memories of their childhood. Two young teachers immerse themselves in a shared discovery of Hong Kong culture. A politically engaged barista cum actress decides to stand for the hotly contested 2019 elections.
