Wong Kei, a 25 year-old young man, has given up a stable job in order to pursue his dream with his camera, spending all his time to capture the precious city life. One day, he strolls around in a fish market, where he occasionally meets a fisherwoman. But it wasn’t until later he sees her again in the TV screen talking about her way of living that he feels truly inspired by her lifestyle. Determined to look for her, he begins a journey in which he will meet many old neighborhoods in Macau and learn from them the past and present of the fisherman industry, their everyday lives, and how the fisherman culture have contributed to the present Macau. Dedicated to explore this declining culture in this small city, “Time Travel” literally takes us on a trip in which we may understand the social significance of these common people that we might never have noticed before.
