She excitedly awaits taking her daughter to a Zhua Zhou place, where newborn children pick up special objects that predict their fates and strengths. When her daughter picks up an object that hits too close to home, the mother can’t help but intervene. For long enough, things continued smoothly and according to the mother’s wishes, but inevitably, life-changing choices created pockets of strife between the two. In the end, when the daughter finally questions her mother’s motives, she receives an unexpected answer.
