Summary Of The Story:
Another decade after the death of Shanshan's father, her mother was old, and she would occasionally recite that society was running too fast for people, and never waited. She felt the old age and powerlessness of her body. Shanshan often wonders if time is really linear. Why does what is happening now all surface with fading traces.
This mother-daughter pair argues and sometimes warms each other. Never agreeing with each other, yet becoming more and more alike. Their indifference and selflessness support each other's lives silently and time to go together, waiting for separation.

Many women's films are about women's struggles on the material and social level, but I wanted to write more about the spiritual level. So this movie is a memory, an inner experience. No one is not facing a spiritual dilemma today, not only women.
We talk more about "family of origin", but this film is not psychological. I think father and mother are the roots, the land, the nation, the history, the way we write unchangingly.
A subtle and vivid mother-daughter routine, with no huge conflict or reconciliation, only the long-standing friction and comfort in life.
