This symbol “丶” can be a stroke appearing frequently in Chinese characters, and also can be used in syntax as a comma. Its shape is like a teardrop. This teardrop is like a parasite, hiding in so many characters as well as in many young people's hearts, which cannot be eliminated. As an album name, it goes throughout each short film and lays the tone of the whole film. The album's five films, directed and acted by me, express five kinds of feelings that are commonly experienced by people at the stage of adolescence: Lotus - degeneration,Fire and water - contradiction,Estrus - depression,Clown - loneliness,Family - resignation.
