Yin and Lee are making dumplings in the kitchen of their restaurant. Yin is kneading dough. Lee is cutting meat and vegetables to make the filling. They are preparing the favorite dumplings of their daughter Tim Tim who has passed away three years ago. While they are cautiously folding the dumplings, they are thinking of the beautiful and painful moments. In all silence ... each with their own memories.

Shot on Kodak Vision3/250D with Zeiss Ultra16 lenses and the anamorphic 'Tronchet' system, on the Arri 416 camera. With the use of Arri Master Diopters to get close focus.
