Synopsis:

A lyrical reminiscence of an innocent childhood friendship in Hong Kong in the 80s, when being kind to someone did not requrie a reason like today. Shing’s dad despises Chi, whom he regards as rude. Shing sights Chi, who suffers from polydactyly, being bullied by hooligans. He comforts Chi by secretly letting him do glassblowing at his dad's workshop secretly. His raged dad finds out and beats him up. Shing eventually wins his dad’s trust, but unintentionally spurs Chi's low self-esteem, and Chi walks out on him. How will the two boys reconcile?

Déclaration du réalisateur:

Glass Works was inspired by a childhood friendship that I personally experienced and very much want to share with both the young and the young at heart.
