Excerpt:

Set in the once bustling Shek Kep Mei Market, A Tale of Two Generations narrates the story of a fishmonger Lai Shui-kee and his son Lai Kwong-yip.   In the 1960s, the father fled the political turmoil of China.   He settled in Hong Kong, where he raised his family by selling fishes in a wet market.  The son, who grew up in a prosperous Hong Kong, found himself trapped in a city that prizes growth over justice, and political correctness over democracy.  A Tale of Two Generations continues from Lai Sun Store, showcasing the community and cityscape that saw the birth of public housing in this city.
