Director’s statement

Wang is a female director from a small industrial city in China. She was raised in a family where violence consistently happens, which develops her objection to patriarchal society. The inspiration of this movie comes from her life experience. Wang’s father likes to sacrifice other’s interests to achieve whatever he thinks is right for the family, which is what the character Damon does in the movie. Wang’s mother robeys to her husband, but she also has her bottom line, who is the prototype of the character Stella.

Many women have always had to fight against abusive relationships and this situation is underrepresented in film. It's important to see women fight back as our heroine decides to do. Wang wants to represent female who live at the edge of the society and do not give up fighting for what they deserve .
