Ngau Tau Kok Estate is one of the oldest and largest public housing projects in Hong Kong. Since the government announced its plan to re-develop the area in 2001, residents have been gradually relocated to new housing estates. Following two social workers who provide services and emotional support to the residents as they deal with the relocation, Moving offers a glimpse into the lives of a number of impoverished elderly people. This is an emotional group portrait of the parents and grandparents who once helped establish the foundation of Hong Kong, but are now left forgotten and neglected.
