The Anti-ELAB movement comes to a horrifying peak in mid-November at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. When protesters call for a citywide strike and road blockage, police choose to disperse the protesters who were blocking the Cross-Harbor Tunnel. Many of the protesters retreat to the Polytechnic University while police completely put the school in a lockdown by completely surrounding the area. Anxious citizens want to help but can barely go near the campus. Meanwhile, within those red brick walls, the camera captures a campus shrouded in darkness and horror. Besides trying to leave or hide, the only thing they can do is wait. Like all of Hong Kong living under a totalitarian regime, how could the trapped ones, the protesters and Hong Kongers come out alive?
