I believe the truly tragic places in this world are not hidden in the dark, but under the hot and dense sun. Sin and suffering get exposed by the broad daylight.
The newborn baby mysteriously disappeared in the magical rain, such an "inspiring event" provides enough suspense and motivation for the development of the whole story, and the story itself is a subtle incision to explore the female survival state. The whole story uses the structure of genre films to set up a smooth narrative text, and uses images with oriental temperament to create a unique atmosphere of the region and the age. The crisis and stakes are escalating step by step, the mystery is opened layer by layer as the protagonist deepens, and when the character completes the highlight moment of the individual versus the group, the truth is plunged into the fog of greater unknowability.
I hope to create such a charming character as Fong-tai, and also hope that her story can bring some resonance and hope to the audience.
