Nischaya and Neivda are brother and sister who study in P.2 and P.3 respectively. After they were born in Nepal, their father brought them to Hong Kong. In November last year, the two went back to their hometown in Nepal for the first time. Although the simplicity in their hometown has excited their curiosity, it is still difficult for the two who were raised in Hong Kong to get used to the lifestyle there.

Their father wants the two to attain proficiency in Chinese, so that they will not need to make a living through labour-intensive works like him. Learning Chinese is essential in entering into mainstream society, but as a father, he also wants his children to learn in joy without infinite stress and worries over school reports, such affection is replete with both contradictions and love.

Swatica, with her outstanding academic results, chooses to learn Chinese for the sake of her future, but she also makes this decision to help translate for her mother who knows almost nothing about the Chinese language. Such a clever and precocious girl she is.

These two cases reflect different values. Please listen to the voice of the children.
