In Cantonese

 

A tour of an ordinary small town via lighting, video and physical representations
And experience captivating scenes of a journey of a lifetime that are out of this world

Rain or shine, each day is eternity when seen at a distance ...

 

Softly “She” opens the door to the Time Tunnel, and walks into the sepia-toned 1950s.  In the flashes of light and shadow, “She” sees a town, and fragments of everyday life.  Deftly “She” makes them come together again, and the town appears once again. Emily also comes back from her past life and relives what she had gone through before: from birth to growth, then meets the love of her life, George, gets married, gives birth, and dies…But Emily finds it hard to let go, and begs for one more day – “the day I fell in love with George!” she said.  So “She” takes Emily through the flashes of light and shadow until they arrive at that ordinary day. But wait! Is it that ordinary, after all? Emily discovers it is not so…
