Synopsis: 

Story Logline:
The pressure of giving birth to a baby is all Natasha has been feeling for several years. She is now deep into fertility treatment and there is still no promise of a baby.

 

Synopsis
Female infertility is usually defined as failure to achieve pregnancy after one to two years of regular unprotected intercourse, in a woman during her reproductive age, with her male partner’s normal reproductive function. In fact, the concept of female infertility may be confusing. My parents had been trying to have a baby for over 10 years. They invested everything but still got the failure in the end. Three years ago, I found out that I was adopted and decided to make the story about infertility couple.

Director Statement By Eagle Liao (Chuang-Chieh Liao):

Female infertility is usually defined as failure to achieve pregnancy after one to two years of regular unprotected intercourse, in a woman during her reproductive age, with her male partner’s normal reproductive function. In fact, the concept of female infertility may be confusing.

The process of infertility treatment is tough. My parents had been through the process in Taiwan for over 10 years. My mother had to do the self-injection of HCG by herself every single day. The emotional stress and medical treatment made her depress. Her parents in law gave her pressure, even asked her to divorce with my dad. In the end, they still failed in the treatment and couldn't get pregnant.
Five years ago, I found out that I was adopted. My mother told me her story of infertility. After I came to the USA to study MFA in directing program, I decided to make a short about my mother's story.
