Like My Own

In her very first English contemporary drama, Flora Chan stars as Mabel Lim, a free-spirited Child Welfare Officer who believes in bringing up a child using contemporary methods. Conflicts arise when she places 15 year-old Xiao Cai under the care of the Wong family. Mrs Wong (played by veteran actress Zhu Mimi) manages her household with tyranny and age old rules, contradicting Mabel's modern approach to a child? upbringing. As more foster children are placed under the care of the authoritative Mrs Wong, Mabel becomes increasingly concerned about the physical and psychological well-being of these children. And is there a soft side beneath Mrs Wong's hard and no-nonsense veneer? "Like My Own" is a heartwarming story about a mother's love for kids who aren't her own and the sacrifices that she's willing to make in order to protect them.
