Sing Me a Lullaby (Canada)
by Tiffany Hsiung

Ru Wen was separated from her parents at the age of five. Forty years later, she is still unable to connect the fragmented pieces of her childhood. For Ru Wen, survival meant burying her own curiosity to know why she had been abandoned by her birth parents in Taiwan – a curiosity that grew into a silent longing over time. That is, until her youngest daughter Tiffany started asking questions. What started out as a journey to piece together Ru Wen’s past, soon cascades into Tiffany’s own yearning to understand her mother. Duration: 00:29:00
