    • Synopsis
    • Under Hong Kong’s law, a person who is sentenced to a probation order, or bound over, is required to refrain from certain activities for a stipulated period, to be of good behavior.
      The regular customers of a 24/7 café called APM Café happen to be mostly bound-over at-risk young people at around 15 to 23. Lap, the café’s owner, is a former certified social worker experienced in dealing with rebellious teenagers and helping them to change, while Gor, Lap’s younger brother, an in-service social worker, is relatively backward and prudent within his duty.
      Tinky is one of the bound-over teenagers that Gor works with and she has a bunch of problem friends from drug addict, gay to transgender. Driven by their need of money to make wishes come true, Tinky helps scheme a series of tacit thefts between friends. She even steals a precious diamond ring on Bro Lung’s, a gangster head, wedding anniversary banquet and is finally let out to and threatened by its owner. However, under the protection of Lap, an untold story changes the difficult situation and every young person’s life…
