Director Statement

Through my observation of life, I find that it is very common for elders not to follow the advice of younger generations, whether it is life concept or lifestyle. My grandmother is like this. She still do not listen to the children's persuasion, insist on farming, and do not want to live in the city, after my grandfather died. Therefore, I want to make a documentary like this to find out why. At the same time, I hope this film will give some answers to audiences who are similarly confused.
