After tenderly caring for her disabled grandson into adulthood, this grandmother realises that her mortality will be in the way.
Unlike other parents, she cannot teach him to be independent.
There’s no such chance for her as he can only be dependent, in means and ways that his childlike mind can comprehend.
She does the best a mother or grandmother can: by feeding him. Even for the most childlike of minds, love and food are intertwined.
‘Ten Thousand Bowls’ was made by Kee Swee San, Tan Jun Yuan, and Amos Tan Kok Hao.
