The symbol "丶" is the most frequently used stroke in Chinese characters. It is shaped like a teardrop, and also like a parasite. It often appears on people's faces and hides in people's hearts, and it cannot be completely eliminated. As the title of the work, "丶" runs through each short film and sets the tone of the entire video work. Among them, five videos directed and acted by the artist—"Estrus", "Lotus", "Family", "Fire and Water" and "Clown" express five negative emotions commonly experienced by individuals—division, shame, depression, contradiction and loneliness.
