Episode seven


Dr. Dylan:Take a look at our world, look at the state of our city, apart from the word money we can no longer differentiate between black and white, we have all been shaped by the environment to be as if we were all the products of the same mould. To like to eat the same food, to like the same television programs, to support the same political viewpoint, to subscribe to the same lifepath from birth to death, this city is dying, you know?

「你睇吓我地呢個世界,睇下我地呢個城市係乜野樣,除咗錢呢個字之外,我地已經分辦唔出是非黑白,我地每個人都被環境訓練到,好似倒模出嚟咁。鍾意食同一樣既­嘢、鐘意同一樣電視節目、支持同一種政治立場,信奉同一種生死病死既做人方法,this city is dying, you know?」

Episode thirty

  • Yip Chi Yan (Hazel, Yan):In our lives we inevitably make countless decisions large and small, and inevitably we ask ourselves, what if? What if, with this decision on that day I had chosen differently, would the me of today still be the same? Different choices will lead down different roads, but I believe that in the end they will all appear at the same place, I believe.
