在過去重大社會事件裏,城市中愛書、賣書、說書和作書的人無縫融入於遊行隊伍之中。然而此紀錄片將把這一眾人帶到聚光燈之下,由書店開始探討文藝空間的價值。導演江瓊珠本是愛書人,三四年間走訪過香港、新加坡及馬來西亞的獨立書店,探究各書店工作者對於書、社區、生活等範疇的態度,展現在不同經營理念底下,獨立書店如何可成為一個多變、包容,並刺激思想的空間。這些工作者面對社會帶來的新舊挑戰,仍然在書店自得其樂地工作,每人都發言堅定,從不在乎資本主義社會所強調的商業價值,甚至逆其道而行,只為了把好作品及作者帶給人。正因如此,這些書店能作出不同新嘗試,對社會事件保持敏銳的眼光,成為了大眾反思社會矛盾的重要出口。

Booklovers, booksellers, storytellers and writers can easily squeeze into various demos of important issues. This documentary brings this group of people in the limelight, discussing the value of art space in bookshops. The book-loving director Kong King Chu visited independent bookshops in Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia for three to four years, tried to understand how a bookshop can become a dynamic, inspiring and heartwarming space, even these booksellers carry different attitude towards life, books and community, as well as management beliefs. These booksellers do not care about the commercial value emphasized by the capitalist society and they are content in their own way by sharing their enthusiasm about books with the others in spite of all difficulties. Thus, they keep trying new methods to sharpen their touch on social issues and become an important starting point for the general public to reflect upon conflicts in our society.
