This student-produced documentary, which won the top prize Wiseman Education’s ThinkSeries Video Competition (Junior Secondary Division), is about two elderly men, Mr. Wong (a hawker) and Mr. Ng (a shopkeeper) who, in their devotion to their work, show faith in themselves. We’d like to thank Mr. Wong and Mr. Ng for giving us their time and sharing their views with us.
