synopsis | the hong kong agent

s y n o p s i s

a mysterious agent arrives in hong kong on an unspecified mission. without a map and relying solely on his intuition – the agent drifts – his encounters with activists, sidewalk shamans, a feng shui master, teenage hopefuls, artists, shopping arcades, ghost buses and psychedelic trains become intriguing clues with which to de-code the city and its inhabitants. throughout the work the agent gives first person narration in the form of ‘poeticised’ reports. his interpretation of the events he witnesses and participates in, provide an idiosyncratic yet insightful reading of life in hong kong. local perceptions are explored in scripted scenes in which characters relate personal experiences and engage in compelling dialogues on subjects ranging from Chinese government rule to shamanic healing.
