The Place For You


FADE IN.

EXT. AIRCRAFT CABIN - DAY

Sitting in a window seat, PETER focuses on the view on the ground.

PETER (V.O.)

Oh, the plane is cruising

over Hong Kong island.

Having used his phone to shoot from the window, he checks the photo.

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd)

This's the first photo I

have, capturing both my

Kowloon and Hong Kong

homes.

Peter looks very pleased.

INT. SITTING ROOM - DAY

Peter focuses on his phone screen.

PETER (V.O.)

My answer on this question

is quite well endorsed.

We see the question and Peter's answer on the screen.

Why are the Hong Kong protests not getting more worldwide support?

The five reasons why Hong Kong protests are not getting more worldwide more support are:

Criminality - making international fugitives in Hong Kong hard to be extradited, if at all, is not warranted.

Democracy - accelerating Hong Kong's democracy should be within Hong Kong's margin of appreciation.

Secession - inciting citizens of other territories to secede can backfire at home, as united we stand.

State responsibility - intervening in other State's democratic affairs breaches sovereign equality.

International morality - loving peace rather than violence is what every country and people cherish.

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd)

Yes, my five reasons

to inform the international

audience to form informed

views.

Pausing.

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd)

Let me share it on facebook

as well so that Hongkongers

can make informed decisions

timely.

Peter taps on the phone screen and we see a bar chart.

PETER (V.O,) (Cont'd)

My answer about the

reopening of the Airport

is also well received.

We see the question:

Why did protesters back off and allow the Hong Kong Airport reopen on August 14, 2019?

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd)

Yes, I went to the Airport

to pick up my wife and our

younger daughter and then

I departed on Aug 16 and

returned on Aug 20.

Pausing.

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd)

Yes, I took photos of the

Airport's new crowd control

measures.

Peter scrolls down the screen.

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd)

Okay, I've found them.

Let me insert one to my

answer.

INT. STUDY - DAY

Having worked behind the computer, Peter taps his phone screen and reads a notification.

We see a conspicuous notification:

120,000+ people were sent your answer in the Quora Digest: Why did protesters back off and allow the Hong Kong Airport to reopen on August 14, 2019?

PETER (V.O.)

(Smiling)

Wow, they do the promo

for Hong Kong without

my paying a cent!

Pausing.

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd)

I've an answer that has

attracted about 8000

views with just words.

It's about my family story

and I'd insert a photo too.

Peter searches photos from his Photos App.

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd)

Let me pick the one that

captured my homes from

the air.

Pausing.

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd)

Oh, it reminds me of an

oldie that I first heard

when I was a kid.

Peter searches YouTube and taps: Kowloon, Hong Kong.

We hear music and singing: Kowloon, Kowloon Hong Kong, We like Hong Kong. That's the place for you...

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd)

Even tourists like Hong

Kong. As Hongkongers

we all should love Hong

Kong!

FADE OUT.

THE END
