I am 22 this year. Back to June 4th, 1989, my father was also 22: he was one of those Chinese college students there, protesting in Tiananmen Square in Beijing.

 

Now 28 years have past, and due to strict supervision of media and public news, many Chinese youth, of our generation are not willing to mention, have forgotten, or even do not know about this event at all.

However the fact is, the college students in Tiananmen back in 1989, that generation is our fathers and mothers' generation. Our fathers and mothers had directly joined the event, that they went to Beijing and expressed their voices once.

 

This is a film towards this incident between these two generations, that I really want to know, between them, what has been changed, and what has not?
