An unknown space.
A group of unnamed people. 
A repeated narration of WWII Hong Kong.

A mob boss who succumbs to collaborate with the Japanese. 
An old businessman who rejoins the war for his comrade. 
A Canadian soldier whose sole intent is to stay alive. 
A Hong Kong youngster who fights at all costs. 
A Japanese commander who follows orders without question. 
A British Major and General who each sticks to his own view.

As war flames rise, what will be torn down?
As many are shattered in this castle of glass, what are we holding on for?
In tides of bloodshed, what remains of us?

Is this merely history, or will it be a prophecy?
