Director’s Statement:

I rarely saw my father as a child. I grew up with my mother and grandmother. Suddenly my father would come and my mother would send me to my grandmother. So I was very angry with my father! On the other hand, when I came home, I would question why the fish package was given to my father! Grandmother used to pat my father's head all the time, I was very pride of it. When I remember now, I only laugh - what a jealous father! I am now in my forties - but I still think that I couldn't do it. Because I can never fulfill their dreams. After studying film, I returned home and saw that my father's dialysis had started. My strong mother is walking slowly - chest pounding. It seemed that their words were not known. As far as I know, it was not said. So I started recording the stories of their political life with the camera close at hand. In the hope that if someone ever wants to know their story, the record can be provided. And preserved, our true history, in their mouths.
