The film was shot on location in Cheung Chau in autumn 2020, at an actual pre-war historical site of a cinema. A middle-aged man from the urban district mindlessly takes up the role of a guard at this deserted cinema in Cheung Chau. He encounters a series of people and incidents, though he has no choice but to leave when the cinema gets demolished.
