Director Statement

When I studied FAMU in Prague, I noticed there are lots of Vietnamese grocery stores on the street. As the first generation of migration, most of those Vietnamese can't speak fluent Czech, however their children born in Czech can not only speak fluent Czech but also become more closer to Czech culture. In order to assist their children to integrate with the Czech society, most of the Vietnamese family would hire a Czech nanny or tutor to teach their children. Then it comes to the conflict between different generation and culture, the question to self-identity, and the alienation between parent-child relationship. I hope this film could accompany some migrant family when they have to face this issue.
