Synopsis Attack and defense, that’s what fencing is, and so is life. Two university fencing team players are meant to be each other’s archenemy. Fung, who is talented but bad-tempered, lost his place to Pun in representing the university in the upcoming inter-school competition. He puts the blame on the fact that Pun was born to be the son of the past representative of Hong Kong fencing team, which is an advantage that he could never beat. While the other side of the story is, Pun is being pushed to the edge of nervous breakdown by his over-aggressive father who wants his son to complete his unfulfilled dream.

Remarks shared after Festival visit


It was indeed a great honor for me to participate in the Golden Harvest Film Festival. Not only did my film was screened during this oversea festival, it was also mind blowing to learn about the passion and emphasis that the Taiwanese has fallen for the culture of feature and short films. They perceive short film festivals as a rare opportunity for sharing events to happen and to let the audience to know more about the production process and the concept behind each short. The Taiwanese audiences were very involved in the screening of the films and they proactively raised a lot of inspiring questions, which have given me a different perspective to self-reflect on my own work and its areas to improve. I also got to know other directors who also participated in the festival, and we had good sharing on the difficulties we encountered during film shooting.”
