Hong Kong's youth divided over its future, 20 years after handover

Saturday July 1st marks 20 years since Hong Kong was returned by the United Kingdom to China. Chinese president Xi Jinping will be attending the celebrations. The anniversary comes against the backdrop of a contentious civil battle for democracy in Hong Kong, as the first post-handover generation raise their voices against what they see as Beijing's increasing influence. FRANCE 24’s reporters went to meet two young people who take a very different view of the future for Hong Kong.
