The day Grandma left us I was in Switzerland Two ideas occurred to me I wanted to follow the steps she left behind I also felt she was actually by my side Right away I made a decision to bring Grandma to see the largest waterfall in Europe with my video camera to witness this journey Grandma and I shared

The image and sound in the composition were all collected in 24 hours after Grandma left us and on the day of her funeral I tried with limited materials to edit this film with four connected screens to see my Grandmother off to let go of my grief

There are eight chapters in the film- First. Presage The premonition of setting off Grandma has left us quietly in her sleep

Second. Voyage When the pilot led Grandma to another world the rudder representing her life has gradually become still

Third. Seeing off With our company, Grandma has finally travelled to the end of her world There is a pair of Death's eyes waiting for her after sunset

Fourth. Tears The scenery rendered as Chinese landscape painting is my tears

Fifth. Frozen The chilling air freezes the moment It freezes my heart Can it also freeze the steps of my Grandmother?

Sixth. Out of Focus The sight is blurred at moments of sorrow Mourn silently

Seventh. Worship The last farewell to Grandma

Eighth. Heaven Grandma is on the way to Heaven

This 17-minute long film creates a sorrowful atmosphere The plot is only the frame Viewers can participate in each part as they wish
