Italian première

When Jiang, abandoned as a baby because of a congenital disease, comes across a baby girl with similar problems that her parents are about to leave to die, nothing can stop her from trying every way possible to save her life. This is the start of a battle against parents, doctors, the police – anyone who comes between her and the little girl. With great emotional intensity and the splendid interpretation of the Chinese super star Yang Mi, the film denounces the practice of abandoning disabled children in the period of the one child only policy.
