About this submission

As a Chinese filmmaker based in New York, I found 2020 a time when simple decisions became difficult to make, and farewells could mean departures with no returns. As the pandemic spread, the U.S.-China tension escalated, and racism emerged to the surface of people’s daily interactions, I made this film about a woman leaving the country and a man attempting to connect with a friend. I believe, even at a time when the future is too obscure to see, there is something shared by all of us, something that we could lean on to, whenever in desperation or loneliness.
