The piece intends to portray the Hong Kong protest in a way not depicted in media. The animation shows three occasions, spread across late June until late November, that are peaceful methods Hong Kong protestors used to unite the country in their work against the Extradition Bill. The first occasion shows a truck driver parks his vehicle across the road to stop the police cars from stopping the student protestors; second shows protestors queueing up in Yuen Lang to buy ‘Wife Cakes’, as a result of the ban from public gathering; third shows a student sticking posters of Pepe the frog, a symbol of the HK protest, in an effort to recall love and support for the protestation.
