Lai Sun Store

Lai Sun Store has been in business for 40 years. It nurtured three generations of the Chan family.   Over the years, the mom-and-pop store has emerged as a quasi-public space of the community.   Residents of Pak Tin Estate go to the store for snacks and soft drinks.  But more importantly, they go there to meet more neighbours.  Visiting the store is their daily pilgrimage.  But redevelopment of Pak Tin Estate meant the store has to shut down.  The film captures the last days of the store, and how the neighbours say goodbye to the Chan family.
