Synopsis
My daughter was born in Germany, shortly before COVID-19 broke out in my homeland China. The following year felt as if our public life was frozen, but many things happened within our little family: my daughter started to crawl, then walk; learned to fight with her older brother and spoke her first words; she celebrated her first birthday. On the other side of the globe, my parents celebrated two Chinese New Years without us and they had to say goodbye to my Grandma. It had snowed, it had blossomed, Trump was gone. All of these pieced together is this little film.
