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.

Absolutely awesome. Anusorn Soisa-Ngim is a visual genius, I mean he is able to center the whole film and the whole action on the feelings.

Enjoyed it very much. Don't write it off because of the bad reviews. Give it 20-30 minutes and decide for yourself.
