Synopsis

A Family Tour


Five years ago director Yang Shu made a film that offended the Chinese government. Since then, she has been forced to remain in exile in Hong Kong, far from her aging mother. So Yang Shu uses the opportunity to attend film festival event in Taiwan to go, with her husband and son, to covertly meet her mother. Meanwhile her mother has arranged to be there on a Chinese government controlled leisure tour.


A keen exploration of the growing tensions within China, as well as of dynamics between Hong Kong, China and Taiwan, this film is a subtle and incisive view into how the political manifests personally, and vice-versa.
