Synopsis Although 15-year old Wing is bounced around in foster homes, he forms a genuine sibling relationship with 9-year old Hoi Lam and the mentally challenged Chi Yan. They are cared for by Chi Yan's grandmother who heads up this makeshift family. Occasionally full of teen angst and bordering on delinquency, Wing nevertheless showers Hoi Lam and Chi Yan with brotherly care. Cheerful Ho Lam dreams of reunion with his mother. In their brief days together, the trio formed a true family bonded by love instead of blood. The immensely likeable and talented trio of actors shines in this poignant and heartwarming tale on how children find strength in each other.

Remarks shared after Festival visit

Short Shorts Film Festival is a large scale and well-established short film festival in Japan and they selected films from all over the word. As there were a lot of promotion in the city, quite a number of audience came to see the screenings on both weekdays and weekends. I have got the chance to enjoy shorts from different countries and there were volunteer translators to help with the cultural exchange. Moreover, I have met some film festival staff and they encouraged me to participate their short film festival in the coming future if I have another new short film. Although this film festival is a bit commercial, it was still a really treasurable experience. I would like to show my gratitude to NAE as it allows local directors to go overseas and broaden our horizon.
