Overview

Li’s younger sister, Jin, survived their parents' induced abortion and abandonment because they were wishing for a boy when the one-child policy was in place. Today, Jin struggles to accept her parents. The elder sister, Li, is now pregnant and wonders if the baby is a boy her husband wants or a girl she might need to abort.

Review

In 1994, when the one-child policy was most strongly controlled in China, the director’s younger sister, “Jin,” was born. Despite two abortion injections and being left on the street for a week after birth, she survived. She was adopted by her relatives to escape government surveillance, but the trauma of being abandoned by her parents and the thought that the world didn’t want her to exist has made her feel alienated from life. The documentary shows that the government’s dogmatic policy is nothing more than violence against humanity, the consequences of which must be borne by the individual, and this misfortune is passed down from generation to generation. The film’s virtue lies in the director’s will to embrace everything even in the frame of a selfish and fragile family mixed with guilt, hatred, and longing for love. [Sung MOON]
