    1941. Hong Kong is occupied by Japanese forces.

    During the three-year-and-eight-month occupation, the Japanese military pillaged and arrested cultural figures living in Hong Kong. The Dongjiang Guerilla unit was tasked with rescuing these cultural figures and extracting them from the besieged city.

    The occupation transformed Hong Kong from a prosperous city into a barren land with no food or water. Primary school teacher, Lan – recently separated from her lover, Rong - and her mother are trying to survive this difficult period in their small run-down flat. After the schools are shut down, Lan unwittingly finds herself embroiled in the guerillas’ mission to save novelist Mao Dun. In the process, she meets Hei-zai, the daring captain of the guerillas. Taking notice of Lan’s calm, resourceful nature, Hei-zai recruits her to join the guerillas.

    Lan sets up a secret liaison point for the guerillas in the city, stealthily delivering intelligence under the watchful eyes of the Japanese military. Worried for her daughter’s safety, Lan’s mother volunteers to take Lan’s place, only to be arrested by the Japanese. To save her mother, Lan is forced to turn to Rong, who now works for the Japanese...

Shirley Yim (Suet Lei), Gill Mohindepaul Singh (Kiu Bo Bo), and Tsang Tak Wa yesterday attended a film promotion in Kwun ong. They took turn to learn Muay Thai from Hong Kong Boxing Association president Alex Tsui Ka Kit. Before punching Tsui Ka Kit reminded Tsang Tak Wa to remember to breathe, but during sparring he not only was not able to follow but also kept shuffling his feet and bouncing.

Suet Lei said that in the film she played a killer. She killed with knives and guns bu she did not have to fight. Thus she hoped to try a fighting film. She said that she liked to exercise and wanted to learn Muay Thai, Wing Chun and get into shape. She hoped to be able to improve her bad habits like slouching and leaning forward. Speaking of work, Suet Lei said that next month she will perform a musical in Sheung Wan, then might tour the Mainland. In the show she played a singer on Temple Street. As for her singing, Suet Lei said that a singer taught her to sing from her energy center and said that her singing was OK.

Andy Lau Tak Wa two days ago asked on his official platform, "Are you ready?" Yesterday his film THE ADVENTURERS (HUP DOH LUEN MUN) officially confirmed that Wa Jai will return soon, at the Hong Kong film premiere in August 22nd.

Resting only half a year after his serious injury, Wa Jai's recovery has become a concern for everyone. Many fans left messages on Wa Jai's official site to express their well wishes.

Speaking of the toughest part of the film, Wa Jai remembered the factory fight. "The dust in the factory was severe but the actors couldn't wear masks. Everyday your nostrils and your spit were dirty. In addition we yelled for a long time in that scene, our voices were a little hoarse and throats a little sore." Despite the terrible environment, everyone still treated the scenes seriously. Wa Jai joked, "Because that is how tough being an actor is."

Chow Yun Fat, Aaron Kwok Fu Sing, Zhang Jingchu, Justin Cheung Kin Sing, Liu Kai Chi and Dominic Lam Ka Wa worked on the Felix Chong Man Keung directed, Alan Mak Siu Fai art directed multinational crime film PROJECT GUTENBERG (MO SEUNG) in Canada. When the Canadian production wrapped, Fat Gor of course became everyone's "stamp collecting" target. At the wrap banquet, Fat Gor took selfies with everyone and led to endless laughter. Mainland star Zhang Jingchu even brought her mother to the banquet and revealed that Mama was Fat Gor's fan. She posted online, "Hahaha, it's a wrap. I have never seen my Mama ask for a photo, I discover that she actually is a secret GOD OF GAMBLERS fan."

Lam Ka Wa who immigrated to Canada guest starred in the film. He and his wife Lau Bo Chun played host to Fat Gor, Fat Soh and the team. Lam Ka Wa shared photos on social media. "The film PROJECT GUTENBERG after finishing the Vancouver location shoot went to dinner and Zhang Jingchu treated! Guest starring this time in Chong Man Keung's film PROJECT GUTENBERG with a bunch of old friends, I have a lot of fun working and playing...Yeah!" Zhang Jingchu not only treated but also fulfilled Mama's wish of a photo with Fat Gor.

Louis Koo Tin Lok starred in the new film PARADOX (SAT POR LONG: TAM LONG) as an all around good father, who in order to save his daughter fought with martial art actors Tony Jaa, Wu Yue, Chris Collins and others. Goo Jai joked that this performance was his "first action film". Aside from fighting, he also had many emotional scenes. "This time the character had a lot of heavily emotional scenes. A lot of emotions weren't displayed through dialogue. We tried to minimize the lines and move the audience with emotions, looks and action."
