Pre puberty kids play in a destructed factory flat, with goldfish swimming around in a fish tank. The water quietly flows, and by the time they grow up, they both came back to the place of child play to bid their farewell promised a long time ago. The fire burns on, and the lives of both fish and human come to a gentle end. The city is the desert, with borders undrawn, dry lands and insufficient air; the city is the rain forest, with dry branches and leaves fuelling for the lost sunshine the children needed to grow. It reflects another meaning of what modern hong kong society is to deal upon: the loss of space and the devastating unseen social stress that we come to understand upon growing pains.
