Tony Ka Fai Leung,
As of lately, very very socio-critical. On top, always up to date and ....well produced. I wish, I could say it was enjoyable but the presented stories are more likely drama film. These destinies get to you. They are heart-melting, gross, society at it's worst and so close to reality. I love this series, even though it usually leaves me in a terrible mood.
I recommend this series. The actors are fabulous, camera and sound to the point, scripts genuine. They have the guts to be different.
They handle uneasy truths. This is life portrait without flourish and mostly it's hurtful. No happy endings? Go figure.
