Why fear when you have your family by your side

A good uplifting drama that shows no matter how tough the life may get, no matter how hard or how many times you fall, get up again and strive forward. A show that tells you even if the world is against you, as long as you have your family by your side don't be afraid and face it head on.

Cheng Anxin a girl whose dreams are shattered when she loses both her legs, the effect is not just on her professional but personal life too. Even at her lowest when she has given up on herself, her mother steps in and helps her get back on her feet ( well prosthetic limbs) and in the process both of them heal and the bond becomes even stronger.

Ruo Hua a girl with a broken relationship with her controlling mother who still is recovering from her son's death doing everything to become independent and get away from her. Her and her mother's relationship arc goes through many trials and complexities and in the process many scars emerge and heal, some new relations are formed while some are broken.

The cast have done a phenomenal job in showing the emotions people goes through when facing harsh realities and how they react to such situations. The complex relationships between mother and daughters are shown quite well. Overall the show is a good healing drama.

A good drama to start 2024!

This drama tells a story of an ordinary family in modern China. This type of story has been told many times before. But what makes this drama extraordinary is the excellent directing of amazing group of actors in a meaningful, realistic and relatable storyline and story telling. The pace is fast but concise. The length is short but not rushed.

The drama did not waste time, it started with tragedy that would change 2 families’ lives. It grabs your heart and never lets go till the end. At least that is how I feel. From a solid start, gripping episodes and a warm ending.

2 siblings who are mothers , expresses a totally different kind of love for their children. One is kind, loving, understanding, supportive and caring. The other, clingy, manipulative, selfish and suffocating. This demonstrates that a mother’s influence in the lives of their children or the actions they do for their children is consequential and life changing.

The cast is amazing. From the main leads to the support role. Through their realistic portrayal of their characters, they took us to an emotional roller coaster ride of pain, love, hope, laughter, fear, failure , insecurities and struggles. Elaine Zhong nailed her role in this drama, her pain and self loathing are palpable right after the accident. YCY acting is also on par with the rest. The moms are convincing in their portrayal of their characters - you will fall in love with one and loathe the other. The support role - the ex husband, the new bf and all the men in Ruohua’s life including her brother all did great in this drama.

The dance and choreography, the special effects - the prosthetic legs are so real I am amazed and wondered how they made is so realistic. The simplicity of the set makes it so realistic and relatable.

Overall, this drama left an impression on me and taught me a valuable lesson about motherhood and life in general.
