While they are still around, let’s show our parents how much we love them.
Though a mother’s love has no equal, many of us grew up being closer to our dads. When mom doesn’t allow you to do something, dad is always there to the rescue, right? Dads are often busy with work, but all their sacrifices are made for their children’s future. Unfortunately, as our parents get old, we tend to forget about them and concentrate with our own lives.
In this Korean short film entitled, ‘A Day’, a father wakes up to an empty house and reminisces on his children’s photos with him. It was like that every day. He was alone. His children were both busy with their jobs, and didn’t have time for him—even on his birthday!
He makes a meal for the first time since it was his birthday, and nobody made seaweed soup for him (Korean tradition to make seaweed soup on their birthday). He then makes a phone call to both his children but they turn him down. It was probably the saddest birthday of his life!
