Director Statement

I heard one of my friend’s story last year and was shocked for him calling his biological father “uncle” for 18 years of his life. It was because he was a second child of his family and was “illegal” under the “one-child policy”. He was hidden everywhere by his parents since he was born, for his parents would lose their jobs if he’s spotted by the family planning office. He lived a hard childhood and so did his older sister. His whole family struggles between the strict family planning policy and the traditional concept of patriarchal. His story captured me and pushed me to think and write about what a family could go through under this situation.
