In 1968 CHUANG Ling visited Hong Kong for work and brought with him two 16mm cameras. One of them was an old Bell & Howell; it was given to LAW Kar, who made several films with it. This film documents a short trip from Star Ferry's taxi stand to the office of Chinese Student Weekly in Kowloon Tong. It shows the street scenes of Hong Kong in 1968 and the state of mind of the young filmmaker after the 1967 Riot. The poster of the Amateur Films Exhibition shown at the end of the film was designed by HUANG Hua-cheng and featured a photograph by CHANG Chao-tang.
