Director Statement

The message of the film is that all parents love their children. As previously mentioned, a father may not show their affection as much; hence this film will try to illustrate the extends that a father could go for their son. This film aims to foster better understanding and relationship between father and sons and that we should be more filial to our parents as well. Our parents grows older and weaker everyday and who knows when they would leave us. We should be dutiful when we have the chance.
