Private Project


If an adult’s society has only traps and cunning, and sacrifices honesty and integrity for the pursuit of material benefits and survival of the fittest, will their children have a truly good educational environment?
Lina tutored her eight-year-old daughter to do homework every night. She’s anxious, compromises, sometimes angry and sometimes craven. Like millions of middle-class parents in China, She’s willing to pay a lot for child. But She still was insecure.
The story is composed of typical and true common ordinary things in daily life.
When Lina realized that the behavior of adults is the most influential to the children, she tried to change even if she’s like a square peg in a round hole. She's out of place, as insignificant as an ant.
It strives to show the real life of urban Chinese today.
