যানবাহন থেকে চলমান মুহুর্তগুলো অভিভূত করে হংকং-এর রোজকার যাত্রীদের। কাউলুনের মং কোকের সরকারি আবাসে বেড়ে ওঠা দুই প্রতিবেশিকে অনুসরণ করে চলচ্চিত্রটি পুরোনো হংকংকে শ্রদ্ধা জানায় এবং সেই সময়ের ইতিহাস ও সমৃদ্ধ সংস্কৃতিকে ধারণ করে। নির্মাতার বাবা-মায়ের ছেলেবেলার স্মৃতিচারণ থেকে অনুপ্রাণিত হয়ে চলচ্চিত্রটি তৈরি।
