With voice-over and a montage of visual images, a young woman recounts her past, describing her family's move from China, to Canada, and how her parents were forced to decide which child to leave behind, their son or daughter. Her story --one common among Chinese families--is told in a slow, fluid progression using a collection of photographs and dramatizations that bind the viewer between beautiful images and haunting memories.

Award(s): Best Post-Secondary Drama, Best Cinematography, Best Actor, Cascadia Festival of Moving Images
