It was the 50th anniversary of the Chung Chi College, the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Students proposed the idea of making a musical and it was supported by the college. Music was composed by students from the music department. The story is about Hang who had revived from a seven-year-long vegetated state. He was betrayed by his friend Keung, a reporter who fabricated the headline of Hang being a cloned man. Scenes selected here include the “Revival of Life” of Hang at the opening, the song of “Headline” at the end of the first act, “Tell Me the Truth” when the reporters accused the doctor of cloning human beings and “The Code of Medicine” when Keung sings about his vision of being a paparazzo.
