Two adventurous middle-aged professionals, who are also Good Samaritan, possess the determination and courage that many teenagers lack.

At 53 years old, Stephen is yet to reach the default retirement age. However, he has actually given up his lucrative job ten years ago, when he was 43. Stephen went back to school, consecutively completed five Master’s degree programmes and actively volunteered for the society.

April, who also has a Master’s degree, still has a couple years until the retirement age. However, she continues to challenge herself to discover new possibilities. To promote recycling, she switched career in her middle age. April transformed from a director at the Hong Kong Confederation of Trade Unions to a glass-recycling hero. She left the air-conditioned office and went out to work day and night in back alleys and junkyards.

From most people’s perspective, their decisions might be considered senseless and incomprehensible. Stephen and April, however, believe that the changes make their lives more fulfilling and meaningful.

Ignoring others’ stares and harsh words, Stephen and April picked their own paths in their middle age. It does not matter how many decades we live, what is important is to create a new prime of life!
