The Soi Cheang Pou Soi produced, Wong Hing Fan directed, Aaron Kwok Fu Sing, Simon Yam Tat Wa, Gordon Lam Ka Tung starred action crime film DISCONNECT'D (DUEN MONG) due to the pandemic had difficulties with shooting on location. After several rounds of adjustments they were finally completed. In the film hackers attacked a financial organization and led to a severe internet crisis. Three Best Actors Kwok Fu Sing, Yam Tat Sing and Lam Ka Tung in the film all had portrayals of good and evil. Due to this crisis evolving into an internet rap, they began attacking each others.
In the poster and the trailer, Kwok Fu Sing played an internet security company IT expert who tensely pounded away on the keyboard and through computer monitors traversed between the real and the internet world. Aside from the three Best Actors, another selling point was that the film company spent almost 20 million yuan to create the internet jungle in the film and the virtual and actual location crossover very detailed. Sing Sing said, "In the film we said the internet world the internet jungle. Earlier due to the pandemic we weren't at liberty to shoot on location, so the team changed its plan and found a very pretty forest in Hong Kong for the production. Because the location had towering trees in various shapes and forms, with a little artistic designs some scenes through the camera lenses did not need additional computer graphics to look very pretty. The result also had certain effect and realism. However this time the film's computer graphics team in order to create new visions with high efficiency special effects strongly created different layers of the internet world for the audience to have an all new visual experience. They would be able to see various virtual and actual crossover in different scenes, which was very apt for this film's subject."
