Beginning in Macau, this film records the historical events that brought Western powers"”Dutch, American and English"”to Asia. The realities of life in Hong Kong and Kowloon during the 1970s, the bustling urban areas and the New Territories on the border of China are examined. Singapore on the other hand, is a crowded island and the centre of trade and tourism. The film clearly draws comparisons as it looks at the cultural perspective of both countries. Hong Kong and Singapore are both governed by the professional 'elite' ruling class. However they have each produced very different societies under the pressure of history and circumstances.
