Students committing suicide – who would listen to their voices? A mother has pinned high hopes on her son who commits suicide. The film tells the story after his death. The same mother now pins all her hope on the younger daughter, who goes to a school that stresses public exams and drillings. Confronting pressure from family and teachers, she chooses to leave.
Who would listen to we students’ voices? Anyone still remember over 30 students left us in the past year? Students have already sacrificed too much. It’s a shame that we could only compromise with the mainstream since we are all afraid to walk a diverse path.
