 SYNOPSIS 

22-year-old Qiong digs into her family's dramas and traumas, exploring the complexity of politics, gender, sex, birth control and social political power over women’s bodies. At the center is Jin, her younger sister who grew up apart from them. Their parents, because they couldn't consider a family without a son, because they already had two daughters, because China was imposing a one child policy, decided that the mother would abort her third pregnancy. But little Jin survived the medical injection for the abortion. Abandoned newborn in the street, little Jin survived several days before being saved and finally adopted by her uncle. Today, Jin has a complicated relationship with her two sisters, her little brother, her parents and with her baby boy. She struggles to accept why she was not wanted and abandoned. The elder sister, Li, is pregnant with her second child. Wondering if it will be the boy that her husband wants, or needs to get ready to abort if it is a baby girl. At this critical moment, Qiong takes her camera in an effort to heal the family.
