Storyline

Lo is an honest and simple house agent. He lives with his housewife, jobless son, cyber romance addicted daughter, and self-caring disabled father. Unceasing mortgage, neighborhood disputes, and family conflicts, all lead to endless squabbles. The only thing that can comfort the anxious family is a narrow sea view from their window. But they are startled by a billboard unexpectedly set up over the building across the street, which blocks the sea view from their window. So the family try their best to remove the billboard.

Strange neighbors
19 August 2019 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

Now you figure out who is the strangest ... having said that current political movements in Hong Kong make this almost too real. It is not of course and people protesting in the streets is quite something different than occupants of flats going at it or each other.

As the title suggest there is a home with a view but that does change with a set up of a billboard. Not cool, but change is something that will happen in life. While this treats this as a comedy, it also incorporates a lot of violence too (for a comedy that is). Take it as it is and enjoy if possible, as this is quite decent
