Chinese filmmaker Yang Shu lives in Hong Kong with her husband and son. Due to her repeated efforts to film China’s political injustices, she is no longer welcome in her home country. When her latest work gets selected for a festival in Taiwan, Yang Shu takes the opportunity to travel there to meet with her mother, on a family holiday with complicated arrangements. The plan is to stay as inconspicuous as they possibly can.
Director Ying Liang’s A Family Tour mirrors recent events in his own life after the release of his 2011 film, When Night Falls. Self-referential yet deeply personal, A Family Tour highlights the disruption of lives under the oppressive rule of a country where trying to be together with your loved ones counts as a brave action of defiance against authority.
