Wing-luk, who grew up in a poor and repressed family, is fortunate enough to find an outlet for his emotions: hurdle races, even though his mother Saul ing does not care. He tries his best to overcome his born limitations, yet his goals remain even more distant. As he is about to graduate, can he take the leap to achieve better results and at the same time overcome his difficulties in life?

Artist’s Statement

When I was in middle school, I fell asleep at a sports gala and when I awoke, I noticed that the whole stadium was quiet. There was no applause, no boos and no reactions coming from the audience. At that time, there was a high school senior who was running a hurdles race on the track. He couldn't cross the hurdle in three steps, he fell down, tried again and failed once more, and repeated it time and time again. All these years, I thought he was the only one like that. Over the past year, I saw many more in Hong Kong. I discovered that this WAS the only way. I recalled this person, so I made a film about him.
