There are fussing relatives, spoiled children and the unconventional behaviour of the black sheep of the family. There’s also Grand Uncle No. 7, who is asking for everyone’s help to look for the missing pieces of his retirement handicraft project. With any luck, it could be the perfect gift to mark the arrival of his first grandniece.   Talented scenographies create a dramatic world, Hong Kong style. The performance features CCDC's Scholarship Class. This class gives full professional training to young local dancers, encouraging them to express their artistic potential
