This video recorded my daily journey of returning home from school in 2015-2017.
I revisited the route and illustrated it with my parents’ voices built into this video essay.
My mother is a Vietnamese and I guess it is not what she said but rather the sound of the language itself that gives me a warm embrace and special calling.  
Before I graduated from university, I wanted to make a video about my adolescent and young adult period, about my relationships with my family, schoolmates, friends and myself, and how all this shaped me. This video is a grand finale of that period and an encouragement to myself. 
This video is just a part of the process of my self-acceptance. We always find comfort from songs as we feel related to the lyrics. So, I want to make one that could always comfort me no matter if I am going through hardship or enjoying my life. I want the song to always remind me to have faith and hope in myself.

“It seems that everything is in vain though, and I still want to reproduce these matters and feelings into video format.”
