Xu Jingtao was born on September 26, 1982. It has been 17 years since I graduated from Shanghai Theatre Academy, and I have always dreamed of directing. In the process of realizing this dream, I worked as the assistant director of more than 40 dramas. In 2016, I directed two immature network movies.
In 2021, it will be 10 years since my father passed away. I made this short film in memory of my father. The text and the presentation of the film are combined with my real life experience in these years. The seemingly absurd background and story are actually the true expression of personal emotions.
I hope that my friends who are in a low point of life or who have similar experiences can find a suitable way to live.
