“MEN ON THE DRAGON Invigorates Hong Kong’s Indie Scene.” - Variety

Lung, Tai, Suk-Yi and William are happy-go-lucky employees of a broadband network company who muddle their way through each day at work. When massive layoffs are expected, they pledge their loyalty to the company by signing up for the newly formed dragon boat team. When they embark on their rigorous training, they’re inevitably forced to face the respective mid-life crises they have been dodging.
