50-year-old Brother Man is a farmer in Sheung Shui Tsiu Keng. Once a city dweller, he has now returned to the fields where parents made a living. An ancient poemPity the Peasantsreads: “Hoeing under the sun in the rice fields, sweat drips onto the soil beneath. What does life have in store today for our modern day farmers?

Chau Man Kit is currently a directing major at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts. He has written screenplays for television series and films.

Director's Note
Before shooting this documentary, I read a newspaper article and discovered that only less than 2% of our vegetables are from local farms. This astonishing news makes me wonder who those farmers are, how they survive in this market, and why they are willing to keep on being a farmer in Hong Kong. Man Gor, the farmer, impresses me a lot, with his abundant knowledge of the science of farming. His father is a farmer as well. This is why I would like to share his story with you all.
