The childhood traumas of family breakdown left me a deep scar, which later became the primary cause for my suffering from depression. While undergoing the mental treatment, I finally summoned up the courage to face up to the broken family and the fragile inner self, trying to uncover the truth behind.

With the progress of psychotherapy, I look back on my growth history. I figured out that a decade ago, my broken family was due to the quarrels of my parent. Those fuzzy memories and true feelings unexpectedly caused an indelible scare on my body. Therefore, I planned to shoot Home Video to figure out the problem between myself and my family. The meaning is to rewrite my family history and try to resolve the pain of myself and my family. To me, the process of making this piece of work is not only a way of grooming myself but also a part of my treatment.
