When Zhu Shen’s husband Changyou dies of cancer, she throws herself into a six-year odyssey to produce their 12-year-old artistically gifted son Perry’s animated film Changyou’s Journey (a 2019 Oscar-qualifying animated short) in honor of his father, unleashing a mother-son tug of war. Zhu must learn to look inward to reconnect with her son, reclaim her own buried artistic prowess, and transform from a “Tiger Mom” to a “Zen Mom.”
