About the film

Festival&Award

Qiaoqiao’s daughter suffers from brittle bone disease, a rare illness  impossible to cure and will make her a "porcelain doll" her entire life. Qiaoqiao sacrifices her own career to take care of her daughter, leaving her husband working alone in the factory in the city. As a migrant worker from a low social class, she finds herself stuck with trivial matters, and her life is going further away from what she has imagined.

CLAP YOUR HANDS takes time to build but the verisimilitude of details of family and country life accretes to a powerful portrait of a working-class woman’s journey. It is a story that might resonate with many people. The unexpected events often interrupt our plans and get in the way of our ambitious goals, and the struggles to make a living beat the dreams of youth. Using parallel storytelling, the film shows how Qiaoqiao has changed in a decade.
