Hong Kong is also called as the migrant city since lots of movings and turmoils happened after the change of sovereignty. Two Families focuses on a family of three generations, in which everyone has overseas experiences. Finally, they are gathering in Hong Kong, but a series of anti-extradition bill protests and COVID make them scattered again. The TV is on, as usual, the Chinese government announces the latest Hong Kong Policies, while all of them act as usual: watering, sweeping and dining. Their plain conversation, however, tells Hong Kong is suffering from traumas. Looking back to 1997, people were equally strained, but this time is no longer a false alarm. Migration is a rapid and easy decision thanks to the current technology and border policies. They are family, yet, barely know about each other, and their paths will no longer cross. For all that, this is perhaps an image of our day-to-day life.
