This big city girl finally makes it home, after cancelling on her mum numerous times.
Jessie’s mum lives alone, ageing slowly in her golden years. Her circumstances are very matter-of-fact, but her story is timeless, unconditional, and universal.
Jessie’s mum’s longing for her daughter is retold through childlike fantasy and a tangential relationship with the new pet racoon.
Jessie’s visits home are rare.
She lives in Taipei, pursuing her big-city dreams.
But when she does visit, her mum spoils and fusses over her, like all mums do.
Her mum waited for her patiently, and it proved to be a very eventful trip.
‘Full Moon Night’ was in the Official Selection at the Kaohsiung Film Festival and at the New Taipei City Film Festival International Student Film Golden Lion Award Pre-selection.
