    • Synopsis
    • On 11 March 2011 at 14:46 JST, a 9.0-magnitude undersea earthquake struck northeast Japan and triggered tsunami waves which were up to 40.5 meters in height. It was the most powerful known earthquake ever to have hit Japan succeeded by the most destructive tsunami.
      “Father’s Lullaby” tells the story in an emergency room in Taiwan on the very day the earthquake occurred. Professor Chen, who was attacked in the night market, is missing his students in Japan. Masahiro, a medical resident from Japan, worries so much about his elder sister at home. There are also another resident doctor named Lily, a hospital director burdened by the grievous past when he lost his wife, a school girl who suffered from domestic violence, and the so-called “student and son” of the professor 20 years ago. Most talks between them are thought-provoking.
      Everyone has their unfamiliar selves in the innermost of hearts. Life is full of gaining and losing.
      God gave everyone soul and body. Only benevolence can maintain a better world.
      Being in Heaven or Hell depends on what is in one’s mind, doesn’t it?
