The film follows six identities into six mismatched locations in Hong Kong. Cosplayed by the artist, six displaced identities, standing in a seemingly contradictive setting for 5 minutes, inviting different reactions from the people of the area. It raises questions about the displaced and replaced, forgotten, or dominating personalities under the rapid ongoing urban renewal campaigns in Hong Kong.
