As a child, my grandmother was given to another family to be raised as a future daughter-in-law in productive roles. Through representing the unjust tradition in the long past, the film aims to reflect women's oppression and struggles for freedom. From personal witness to the general phenomenon in society, the audiences may glimpse the long past, imagine women's situation in our own times, and look forward to striving for real gender equality in the future. Egg is life per se. Eggs are fragile, but at the same time tough. My grandmother is an egg.
