Are elderly parents a burden to their children? An inconvenience?


Most people consider it offensive if you don’t care for your parents in their old age. It’s pretty much unheard of in Asian society. What about reluctance? Or indifference?

Watch ‘Father and Son’ <<父子>>by The Elderly Gentlemen team (Singapore):

As a seemingly indifferent son cares for his aging father, the old man thinks back to the time when he was the one caring for the boy. Eventually, the father realises how much his grumpy son genuinely cares for him.
