Jacky 

Jacky

As a young man, Jacky leads a solitary life with his mother in the Netherlands. Due to the ambivalent environment in which Jacky grew up, he has difficulty developing a clear vision of life. Too smart to deny this problem, yet too weak to master it, he lives his life without controlling the direction where it’s going. When his mother tells him it’s time to get married, his quiet life takes a new turn. Jacky has to make a choice, something he is not used to, being stuck in the vacuum between two cultures.

Jacky was the first Chinese feature film in the Netherlands.
