Synopsis:

Whatever you call it, a revolution or a movement, it was at all times unpredictable.

Since Professor Benny Tai first propagated the idea of Civil Disobedience to the public in 2013, activists in Hong Kong have immersed themselves in the long journey fighting for universal suffrage. In this film, we documented 7 activists: legislator, professor, retired teachers, social commentator, community organizer and student, all of whom had actively taken part in the movement with different perspectives and roles. From Occupy Central to umbrella movement, they encountered love and peace, tear gas and baton, hope and disappointment, solidarity and confrontation, anxiety and misgivings……Through intensive participation, they all experienced a new form of struggle initiated by the young generation. Whether they agreed or disagreed, they persisted to the very end. Even now, most still face possible prosecution by the Government. To them, obviously, the struggle is far from over.
