  Trailer :

    Inspired by the true story of Hong Kong’s first teenage baseball team, director Chan Chi-fat’s Weeds on Fire proves a surprisingly relevant youth sports drama. In the 1980s, two childhood friends join the Shatin Martins, a Band 3 school baseball team managed by the school principal (Liu Kai-chi). From these humble beginnings, the boys experience camaraderie, fall in love and make fateful decisions that resonate throughout their lives amid a changing Hong Kong and its sporting world.

    In the year of 1984, the Sino-British Joint Declaration was signed, and the future of Hong Kong became unclear. In the stream of history, this story of a baseball team beneath the Lion Rock had gradually been forgotten. In that year, "Shatin Martins", the first Hong Kong youth baseball team, was formed. The 10 young players were living an uneasy and restless life as Hong Kong was being humiliated by one defeat after another and the fate of the “Shatin Martins” and their strong rival, the Japanese Buffaloes, hanged in the balance. However, the hardship only brought out their bravery to surmount themselves and overcome the struggles. Living in the golden age, these players ignited their glory with every game as they grew together with their city. Eventually, it all comes down to the final game facing their greatest rival yet...

  Trailer :

    After his mother's death, Chan Kai-yuk feels so alone that he leaves Guangzhou for Hong Kong to look up the father who abandoned him and his mom. But Yuk's hopes are dashed on finding his dad has a new family and considers him a burden.

    Alone and homeless, Yuk is taken in by Auntie Fen, a middle-aged recluse who leads a solitary existence. At first, their different habits and personalities lead to numerous squabbles, intensified by Yuk's self-centeredness and Fen's odd temperament.

    As time goes on, Yuk learns Fen is in the early stages of Alzheimer's. The discovery unexpectedly serves as a catalyst for the young man's growth as a caring friend. For the first time in her life, Fen feels truly blessed. But it is a situation rife with irony due to the nature of her disease and the accelerating elusiveness of feelings and memories.
