In an alternate universe, I don't want to live in the UK

Catherine, who is from Hong Kong originally and now residing in the UK, is currently suffering from homesickness. Looking back in time, she wonders if she has made all the right choices in the pursuit of human rights and freedom. She invites the audience to revisit the choices and take a glimpse at her alternate universes together.

She believes if she learns about them, she could stop regretting and stop being miserable about settling in the UK...
