Why am I left behind?

Why am I left behind?

Along with the reform and opening up of China in the 1980s, people from the rural swarmed to urban areas to hunt for jobs. As the workers formed the backbone of China's labor force and play a pivotal role in building the economy, they sacrificed the welfare of their child. Due to their low income and policy restrictions, parents could not afford to bring their child with them. Leaving with no choice, they left their child behind to work far from home to make the ends meet. With more than 61 million left behind children in China, Why Am I Left Behind explores the common phenomenon through the eyes of three left behind child, Chen Jinhao, Chen Jinquan and Chen Jinhua. Chen Jinhao and Chen Jinquan are brothers from the same father but different mother. They have not seen their parents for more than two years and lived with their grandparent. The two boys are affected psychologically due to the lack of parental love and companion. Join us in the journey to reveal the lives of the left behind children and their family.

When you are using real actors and not "reheated" stars alongside silly semi-amateurs, plus a script that does not self plagiarize, any movie can only be good and very good!

Light entertainment with a great cast. If you like the actors, and enjoy something light hearted, think you will enjoy this film.

Here's a fine example of a film that may makes up for an exciting watch due to its director Anusorn Soisa-Ngim extra-ordinary sense of creating spectacles that feel like breathing artworks.
