Telling a different Hong Kong migrant story: What happened to the Chow family from One Way?

18 Aug 2022 02:01pm

One Way director Wei Du and director of photography Matt Ma speak about their experiences following the intimate and emotional journeys of Hong Kong migrants moving to the United Kingdom, in their compelling two-part documentary. Four months after it aired, Wei and Matt share updates on how the Chows - Fiona, Ah Man and their two kids - are adjusting to life in the UK. They also respond to viewers’ comments, including about the couple’s intense bickering on camera, racism in the UK, and whether there will be a sequel.

About the Show

In June 2020, China imposed a National Security Law on HK to quell political unrest. In the subsequent 12 months, some 90,000 residents left the city to settle abroad. Britain is the most popular destination. ¾ of the HK population qualifies for its BN(O) visa. Emigration, once a privilege of the well-to-do, has now become possible on a massive scale.

This documentary follows the journey of a few unlikely HK migrants, some fleeing the political crackdown, others simply wanting to give their families a better life. It intimately captures the hope and loss the migrants experience along their journey.
