Narrative - short

2019

Director: Emily Van de Veer

'In the early nineties, Jia, a chinese woman, finds herself in Brussels; the heart of europe. She arrives at the family of the man she loves: who lived with her in china, but died in a accident. She comes to bring his ashes, not sure how this new family will respond to her at all. Along with this present, her past, the culture she grew up with, her ideas about her future are all things she took with her.'
