Abstract:
A family drama set in Chinatown in the 1960s. The oldest among four siblings is conscious of his duty as the elder brother to provide for his younger siblings. He slaves as an uneducated stevedore so that his youngest brother can have a university education. Ironically, his youngest brother prefers to get out and work rather than go to university as he is constantly reminded of the sacrifices made by his elder brother and wishes to be free and independent. The conflict between the two ends in tragedy.
