Grandma Xiao Zhu is 86, a widow, and has nothing to lose. A life of selling pork floss wasn’t how she saw her golden years fade away.
Determined to make a change in her life, she heads off to Taipei in search of her Spring time.
She drags her luggage behind her, scouring the streets for a job, for opportunities and fortune. Her tenacity and single-mindedness didn’t go far, but some compassion and luck saw her suited up at a local hotel, giving her best in the service industry.
Spring didn’t last long, but that was okay because Summer was rolling over.
Grandma could be a late bloomer. But she’s seasoned, steady, and still making hay while the sun shines.
Erica casted her own grandmother, Huang Tsai Yu-Chu as Xiao Zhu in this short film. More on the director here.
