SUMMARY :

Libra Sin, a married woman, talks about her concept of "home". She believes that a safe and happy home is important, and is necessary.

They had been living their parents to lower costs and save expense. | Syed Qasid Ali immigrated to Hong Kong from Pakistan. Although rent is expensive, the living condition is unsatisfactory. He regrets coming to Hong Kong because the reality is too far from his expectation. | Lee Wai Wing used to live on the street for 20 years. He has difficulty getting used to the condition in public housing and misses the freedom to live on the street. | Many Hong Kong residents live in extremely small space.
