The 'Floating Mushroom', a traditional fixture in Hong Kong’s public housing estates, is home to many local food stalls. Confronted with construction halts, re-purchase and upscaling in recent years, this kind of local grassroot eatery is now facing extinction. This film follows the final four seasons of one of the 'Floating Mushrooms'. Its owner who spent most of his life running his stall talks about the changes in the past 36 years, documenting Hong Kong’s Pood culture and the way of life in public housing.
