Maryanne and Yin are committed lovers at university but historic events threaten to separate them as they and their friends join the nascent student strike all in the hope of protecting Hong Kong's democracy. Idealism meets reality as Yin has to face opposition from his family whose business is badly affected by student blockades and Maryanne becomes ever more committed to the cause. Despite the strain of their respective ties, their pure feelings bind them together but will the chaos tear them apart?

Taking in nearly a decade of Hong Kong's explosive politics from the student movement to the turmoil caused by the Extradition Bill which erupted into an unprecedented Anti-Extradition Movement, the film charts some of the most vital moments of Hong Kong's history through a handsomely lensed romance and heartfelt family drama that tracks the characters from free-thinking teens into adulthood and responsibility.
