Initiated by one student, a large group of students now protest against the school's high-handed policy. To frighten these students, the school searches all students' schoolbags. The school also tries all means to find the student leader, aiming to suppress the revolution... This movie uses music and singing as a major element to present ideas.

When we talk about student revolution, most of us must think of "The Wall" directed by Alan Parker, but this movie was the early eighties. "The Sound of Revolution" is more local and recent. It gives a good portrayal of a student revolution in Hong Kong. This movie has a well-organized structure; the songs are creative and to the point; the scenes are well arranged; the whole concept is also mature and skilled. Although the revolution described by "The Sound of Revolution" is just an imagination, it can find an echo in the hearts of many of the audience.
