SYNOPSIS

⁣By merging mirror space and the densely packed skyscrapers of Central, this film captures a surreal perspective of the business centre of Hong Kong. Looking through the reflections of glass and mirror, while both presented in a faintly discernible and fragmented way, the archetype of a bustling business district is present, yet the quiet of the night takes over every cycle.
