Having to work at night, he rarely sees his daughter Ann, who develops a fear for darkness since her mother dies. Often left alone at home, she learns to grow up at a tender age. She makes her father agree to go out and play with her on the night of Mid-Autumn Festival, but Ken breaks the promise because of work.

Remarks shared after Festival visit


"Listening to various individuals' feedbacks and communicating with them  brought me lots of unexpected comments and viewpoints about my work. It is an opportunity to review the work, or even myself. I think this is one of the important stages of creating works. This experience, especially it happens in an international film festival,is undoubtedly precious.. Thanks to NAE, I have gained much more imagination and possibility of filmmaking during the trip. I hope NAE can go on and benefit more new filmmakers."
