A cross-culture episodic serial set in hk

SYNOPSIS

 Genre: Satire, Comedy-drama. Slice of Life. Contemporary Asian.


An Asian-metropolis (HK) flatshare amongst 3 cross-culture 30-something singles (Hong Kong Chinese + Indian + Mainland Chinese), serves as a background for the mocking of modern upwardly-mobile pretenses.  


High-achievers who fail fairly frequently, yet help each other stay on the path of faith and growth. Unplanned-for friendships that strengthen through adversity and time. Supported by the robust ageless wisdom of the domestic canine.


Through humour, honest portrayal and dissection of modern urban-living challenges, each episode ends with hope.


Language: mainly English, spoken in accents natural to the character’s background. Liberal use of  local expressions  in Cantonese and Putonghua by respective characters.
