In Jet Li's first ever dramatic role, this is a story of a father's tireless love for his autistic son. A terminally ill father's attempt to teach his autistic son the necessary life skills to survive on his own before he passes away. It is also a poignant tribute to the infinite love that parents have for their children and their unending desire to take care and look after them to their best abilities, no matter the struggle, no matter the effort.

Great acting in this sorrow-filled but ultimately uplifting tale. Have a large box of tissues handy when you watch this.

Unlike most of his movies showing Martial Art, in this movie, Jet Li performed as a patient and loving father who tried to teach his 22 years old autistic boy all the daily life skills before Jet passed away. This is a heart felt film and both actors had been performing very well.

What a wonderful, heart-felt movie! Superb acting! I recommend it!

Excellent performance from the two main characters, makes the story very beliverable and realistic --- unfortunately it also means the ending is not very interesting.

Jet Li gave a strong performance.

It is definitely a tear jerker, though, so be prepared.

Very good movie, it was a tear jerker.

This is a wonderful touching movie. It gives an insight to others about what an austistic child and the challenges their parents go through in life.

Wen Zhang's performance as an autistic young adult is trully breath taking, while Jet Li outstandingly potrays as a selfless loving father in this movie. This movie is truly a good source to help the public to understand autistism.

You need your Kleenex tissue box next to you before you turn on this movie...enjoy!
