SUMMARY :

Cheung aspires to be a fashion designer, so he applies to a prestigious institute in France without discussing it with his parents. The institute accepts his application, and this makes his father very angry. At the same time, his mother is heavily sick. What will Cheung do?

FACULTY PICK :

We are all familiar with stories about youngsters striving for their dreams. Still, the dilemma that these young people face goes beyond description, especially when they have to make a choice among dreams, opportunities, and family. "Taking Root" depicts the conflict between youngsters' persistence and their hopes of being understood by their families as a "war". To show filial obedience, a youngster has to give up his dream. The director of this film described the story with a detached attitude. The movie is daring and balanced; it is a good reference to this kind of story.
