Available on iTunes
WONG Ka-jeng, a 17-year-old music prodigy from a well-to-do family, lives an inexhaustible life provided by his doctor father. At the age of 11, he won his Best Pianist title at the Hong Kong Interscholastic Competition in Music and was invited to play Beethoven's Concerto for Piano No. 1 with a professional orchestra in Czech. However, in the mind of the young talent, he began to question incessantly about his life, about "why piano?", and "is there only music in life?" There since, he who is turning 17 this year has not made much substantial achievements in terms of awards and performance opportunities, other than his temporary drop-out for two years. Sometimes, he is not happy... tormented by reflections on an utilitarian reality and more.This documentary film goes deep down to one's mind: his thoughts, his struggles and his choices. It is a story of a genius, but also a story of everyone, lamenting over our unrecognized talents while brewing one's dream-come-true. Just as what we do in our daily life.....
Director Cheung King-Wai
