Dian jiao jian

Tiptoe | Auf Zehenspitzen
Standing on tiptoe, the two children peek out the front door. When their mother will return, they do not know. Jiajia bravely takes on her role, walking her younger brother to school, doing the household chores and taking care of food, while their father continually avoids his responsibilities. Centered on the children’s world, the film’s gaze drifts through their tenuous day-to-day existence and the emptiness left by their mother's absence.
