Home, and a Distant Archive is a poetic portrait of four Hong Kong women aboard in London, who volunteered for retrieving and digitising the UK records of the handover agreement between the United Kingdom and China, and their thoughts on identity, diaspora and their home at this troubled time. The film is a resonant, poetic, deeply personal, yet expansive reflection, bringing into sharp relief the political and existential moment we are in.

Home, and a Distant Archive adalah potret puitis empat wanita Hong Kong yang meniti karir di London. Mereka secara sukarela mengambil dan mendigitalkan catatan Inggris tentang perjanjian penyerahan antara Inggris dan China. Home, and a Distant Archive merepresentasikan pemikiran mereka tentang identitas, diaspora, dan rumah mereka di masa-masa bermasalah tersebut. Film ini adalah refleksi yang resonan, puitis, sangat pribadi, namun ekspansif, membawa kelegaan pada momen politik dan eksistensial yang kita hidupi saat ini.
