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.

This movie is everything I had hoped it to be and far, far more. Literally every choice they made while making it was a right one.

Some people said the plot was complicated and difficult to follow. We totally disagree, my wife and daughter thought the plot was easy to follow and they liked the way the story developed and loved the ending.
