It is pure human interest story, somewhat off the beaten track and very well done.

good story, moves well, in suspense regarding Mother (1), children (2), events (3)...and it's not a suspense type movie. neat kids, odd situation.

After her husband leaves her & returns to Hong Kong, a single mother makes increasingly grievous errors in judgement with respect to her livelihood, her living conditions, & her parental responsibilities, Watching her two children pay the price for her mistakes makes for slow, painful &, from my perspective, pointless viewing.
