A great documentary on the artistic talents of a Chinese man whose father is suffering dementia. The son is building the set for a play that he is creating. He involves his father to create/help with the musical score. His father was the conductor of a symphony in China. The play parallels the son and father's lives through the use of fantastically designed and created metal characters; it also parallels the story of the son as adult, while the father struggles with dementia. The whole production is fascinating - from the writing of the play, musical creation, building of intricate set designs and characters, who are life sized clockwork machines. A very timely story while the baby boomers experience a rise in dementia; and the children left to care for them. The play production is awesome too.
