My Voice, My Life
Directed by Ruby Yang
High school is often a period of awkward growth in most teens’ lives. Be it in academic, social or personal growth, trying to figure things out at that age can be pretty difficult — even more so when stacked up against peers. MY VOICE, MY LIFE follows the production of a musical, “The Awakening,” by students from “lower-tier” high schools in Hong Kong, that seems to mirror a plotline straight from GLEE.
This group of misfit kids, each with their own unique problems, makes up the cast for this musical production — from delinquents Ah Bok and Fat Yin to Tsz Nok, who has self-confidence issues and recently lost his sight. This ragtag bunch of troubled teenagers all joined the “The Awakening” on a whim, not expecting that it would open their eyes — catalyzing a change in them and their attitudes toward their situations in life.
