Synopsis

The mother is waiting for the meeting with her son who is a murderer.


Director´s Statement

In 2008 a young man named Yang Jia killed 6 policemen. He was sentenced to death by the government, who made the decision without fully abiding by the legal procedures - the lawyer for Yang was carefully assigned, media report was controlled and the court proceedings were not open. Yang¡?s mother was even confined to mental hospital because the authority tried to stop her from giving testimony at court. In this series of real events, the one who stands out most is Yang Jia¡?s mother; her charm, courage and perseverance struck me a lot. With this short film, I pay salute to her, in the hope of doing justice to Yang Jia and the times we are living in.
