A Mum’s Longing For Her Daughter On A Full Moon Night

 

Full Moon Night SS3

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.
