Director of Hard Good Life presents her latest heart touching work. From the second she learned how to hold a camera, she gazed at her father through the lens all the time. This film is a memory collection, after her father was diagnosed with cancer, the director accompanied her father through various kinds of treatment together, lose or gain, hope or sorrow. This unbreakable connection supported them to the very last moment and never faded away.

Director Statement

" My mother died of cancer when I was a child. Every time my father went to work, I stayed home alone. As it was getting dark, I hid myself in bed, making sure my hands and legs were inside the sheets, in case devil will come to take me away.
I'd hold my breath until my father came back so that I wouldn't be afraid. And it dawned on me that what am I supposed to do if someday, daddy never comes back? " - Hsu Hui-Ju
