Director: Liu Zhihai.
Background: The Chinese government implemented family planning from 1970s,and the ‘illegal resident’ was one result of this policy – the person who cannot get his /her household registry with normal process by the relevant organization, such as the bastard, extra birth or who miss the household registry due to other reasons. In China, people will lose their legal identity and right of citizen if they don’t get their household registry, For example, they cannot go to school, marry or find a legal job. In addition, they cannot get a death certificate after pass away. Therefore, the offspring of ‘illegal resident’ are ‘illegal resident’ forever. Outline: A Jiao was pregnant with the child of her and Weiqiang, a local man, although they had not got married. Unfortunately, one day Weiqiang died in an accident, and then their daughter A Qing was born.

With a strong desire to let A Qing could have a normal life, at last A Jiao married a local simpleton under the suggestion of the Police Station superintendent just to get a marriage certificate which can use to solve A Qing’s household registry.
