Unborn Soul

Qing Chen is carrying a child and a lot of pressure. She is looking after a student who has had an unplanned pregnancy and an uncle with cerebral palsy who is at risk of being kicked out of a nursing home. Costs are mounting and time is short but she and her husband are getting by, just about. When she receives news that her baby has a 70% chance of being born disabled, it ignites a crisis in her marriage as Qing Chen and her husband argue over the fate of their unborn baby who is observing everything sympathetically.
With a powerful leading performance by Chi Yun and the participation of people with cerebral palsy, director ZHOU Zhou gives a harrowing look at a woman following her own morality in a world where some hold prejudice against the disabled. [Jason MAHER]
