The Good Daughter

Synopsis

A portrait of the complicated relationship between Long, a disabled Taiwanese man, and Azhe, his Vietnamese wife. Their union results from Long’s urge to obey his overbearing mother and Azhe’s self-sacrificing endeavour to help her impoverished family. The Good Daughter offers a gritty look at a woman’s epic struggle to find balance between her family obligation to support her relatives in Vietnam and her duties as a mother and wife to her family in Taiwan.
