  Description     The film  
It is 1997, and Hong Kong's reversion to China is being ceremonially recognized in Vancouver, British Columbia. Hong Kong Chinese Canadians are celebrating, but they are also acknowledging a range of feelings. Although businessman Michael Lam sheds a tear as the British flag is lowered, he points out that China's leadership may eventually engender respect for Chinese people everywhere.
