Kunlin Wang has studied communication sciences, focusing on gender behaviour. She holds an MFA in film production from Chapman University which runs one of the best film schools in the United States. After various short films and work as a film artist, she presents her first full-length feature film.
A lonely farmstead where a father and his two teenage children live in seclusion. Everyone in the family has their clearly defined responsibilities. Under the hand of the stern father, the only ray of sunshine in the life of the sister and brother is pure childish joy of being together when the father is not at home. Until the moment when the brother discovers that his sister has one more responsibility of which he did not know – to satisfy the sexual needs of their father. It would be naïve to think that the sister and the brother are not aware of their own inherent sexuality. But the brother’s discovery of the secret of his father and sister changes something dramatically and irreversibly.
On the surface, it is a disturbingly uncomfortable coming of age story, with a distorted environment and distorted characters. In a way, the film is also like the story of Adam and Eve falling into sin. However, on an even deeper level, it is an essay of gender behaviour, presented through artistic form. It is not by accident that Kunlin, who is also the film’s art producer, emphasises the initially non-binary nature of her characters. The author is knowingly leaving the viewers with more questions than answers.
