Directed by Alex Law, this nostalgic melodrama is set in Hong Kong in the 1960s, adapted from the director's own life experience. It tells a story of the ups and downs of a local family and their shoe shop as seen through the eyes of their eight-year-old son. The tearjerker drama, featuring powerful performances of veteran actors Sandra Ng and Simon Yam, is heartwarming yet heartbreaking. It sincerely puts eyes on ordinary people's struggles, love, family bonds, and memories, resonating with wider audiences. With the film set to feature in a retrospective of films in Beijing marking the 25th anniversary of Hong Kong's return to the motherland, it was sadly announced that director Alex Law passed away on July 2 at 69 due to a heart attack.
