Synopsis
“Our family is special.” Lei Lei’s father recalls the struggle of his family to live through China’s tumultuous times of the 1950s and 60s. History repeats itself, his family is split again and again, but still clings to the hope of reunion through the magical transformation of his deceased mother. Mixing clay animation, old photos, and found footage with onscreen graphics and live action, Lei Lei reconstructs a vivid portrait of his family’s memories built upon contemporary history, embracing sadness and loneliness in a collage of bitter reality and surreal fantasy.
