He’s the father, the head of the family. But everyone’s ignoring him.
This could be a picture perfect family: a father and his homely wife, their children, and a sweet granddaughter. But something’s not right.
His family ignores his gestures of concern and love, they are so taken by their worries and busy lives.
It’s a sad place to be, alone, slighted, and realising that you’ve become a stranger to your family.
On the eve of Chinese New Year, he decides to do something that made perfect sense to him — but was a rude wake up call to his family.
His family comes to realise that absence does make the heart fonder, but it was probably a lesson they did not have to learn the hard way.
This film was made by Jason Lee and his teenage friends at the Nanyang Junior College, under the mentorship of two film production houses. Check out these production photos.
