Fung is pregnant, and stuck in a loveless marriage.
She works as a fish vendor at the local market and faithfully toils for her in-laws. She’s not mistreated, but she’s not given much respect.
She comes to a breaking point when she realises her husband is more interested in his social life than her well being or their marriage.
She could stay in a loveless marriage, be as dutiful a wife and in law.
But what about her child?
Her husband certainly wasn’t ready to be a father. She had very few options.
It’s an uncertain, scary future, but at least she took control of her situation and did best by her child.
