A documentary about the Hong Kong Resettlement Estate by Photographer John Choy. The first public housings in Hongkong was built as a resettlement for the more than 50.000 people who got their homes destroyed by the large fire in 1953. During the next 20-30 years the Hong Kong government made large efforts to resettle tens of thousands of refugees from the China mainland and Vietnam who lived in ramshackle shacks on the hillsides. Most of them were moved into large resettlement estates. Most of these estates has been closed, Ngau Tau Kok, is the last remaining resettlement estate which now will be closed at the end of 2009.
