Yangon, 1998. A boy and his mother are waiting for the return of the father, a civil servant, to move out another town at Upper Burma. On the last evening the boy tries to understand the complexities of relationships.
A train is moving along the tracks. A woman and her little son are walking along the train station’s platform. It feels like a scene from a Hou Hsiao-hsien film, but the setup is 1998-US-sanctions-hit Burma and the young director’s name is Aung Phyoe. The political background is introduced with great subtlety, and won’t be the focal point of the narrative – though its influence on people’s lives is obvious. What follows is a working-class heart-breaking melodrama.
