Synopsis by Perry Seibert
Jiang Ping's Zhenqing Sanrenxing (Touched by Love) is a sad story about a boy learning about loss. Qiang Gao plays a police officer whose wife has passed away. He has yet to tell his son (Niu Ben) that she is gone. Instead, he has convinced the boy that his mother is in Australia. The boy's female teacher, at the father's request, has been writing the boy letters that are supposedly from Oz. The cop finds out he has cancer and must reveal the truth to the boy, while also talking the teacher into looking out for his son. Touched by Love was screened at the Hawaii Film Festival.
