In September 2004, Leung Kowk-hung (nickname "Long Hair"), a 48 year old Hong Kong born veteran social activist, rebel and street-fighter shocked the Hong Kong community by winning a seat in the elite Legislative Council of Hong Kong. With a majority of 60,925 votes, the scale of the victory was staggering. Long Hair Revolution, follows for a month, the daily life of Long Hair, just two months into his term as a new legislator. With almost unrestricted filming access, the documentary captures many brutally honest and candid remarks. Long Hair Revolution attempts to find the real Long Hair behind his rebel TV persona.

Long Hair Revolution also documented Long Hair's involvement in some headline news of the time including a US$2.7 billion (the world's largest) stock listing of a real estate investment trust, a proposed referendum bill and a planned demolition of some brand new and unused apartment buildings.
