When My Child Is Born

Synopsis

This is a film about family: a young Chinese couple strive to live a free life in the face of the harsh reality of life filled with restrictions. Jun and Long are two lovers, who decide to get married after Jun becomes pregnant in order to avoid any stigma in a traditional Chinese society.

Struggling to take care of the newborn baby on their own, Jun's parents arrive to help, which strains the relationship between the couple. As lecturers while studying for their PHD diplomas, Long is particularly torn between his dream of freedom and the reality of a powerful traditional culture and Jun is torn between the bond she eventually forms with her child and her need to excel in her career and possibly take an extended work trip to Australia. This is the incredible story of a simple tale; the battle between love, life and tradition in modern China.
