520 |aIn China many parents are sacrificing everything to see their children graduate successfully from university in order to obtain highly paid jobs. Han Peiyin has sold off all the family's home valuables and now works in Xi'an to make the money for his son, Shengli, to attend university. For years, Han, carried a notebook in which he recorded all of his loans - mostly small amounts such as 10 or 20 RMB. Han is convinced that knowledge has the power to change destinies and expects his son to be successful. He also recorded his expectations for his son: Around the year 2013 or so, when I am roughly in my sixties, Shengli will take our family to Beijing for a sightseeing visit. We will have plenty of money by then With absolute belief in his son's future success, Han lives in share accommodation for 1RMB a night and uses a brick as his pillow. He works as a labourer when the work is available. Meanwhile at university, Shengli, despite his father's financial support, can barely afford to eat and collects empty water bottles from his classmates to sell for money. And after four years of study, shy Shengli's prospects are dim and the reality is he may end up earning less than his father. This film follows father and son over four years as Brave Father Han supports his son with undiminishing hope for their future.
