the immigrants dream

A video about dreaming of a better future.

We are looking through an aquarium window and see a young Chinese immigrant. He was looking for a better future over seas, but ended up working in a restaurant which is a copy of the ones in his home country. The endless waiting for customers in an empty restaurant is not what he envisioned for his new exiting life abroad.

On the counter is a bowl of fortune cookies, out of boredom he grabs one, hesitates to open it, but decides to throw it back. His luck will come another day…

In Chinese culture, fish are a symbol of fortune. This is because the fish’s eyes never close and many believe this allows fish to see all your obstacles and good fortunes in the future.
