United We Play!

Youthful Hot Fight Ensemble of Dreams

Man Lai Shan (A Man), captain of the Doro Secondary School Women’s Handball Team, leads her ethnically diverse team through secret training as they vow to win the Inter-school Handball Competition. However, they are asked to share their training venue with the Lion Dance Club due to the reform of school’s extra-curricular activities. In the midst of the epidemic, the two teams have become bitter rivals.

When Lion meets Handball–a fight with full of youthfulness and vigour. Can they eventually turn it into a dream ensemble?

“The most ridiculous thing to do in the world is to give up your dream”
