McCann was one of the first tenants in the I.M. Pei-designed Sunning Plaza, located in Causeway Bay, when it opened 30 years ago. In "Heroic Exit" (above), both new McCann staffers and 'old boys' recreate a well-known scene from the 1986 film, A Better Tomorrow, that used the building as a setting.
