Half of Her

Special | 11m 58s

Life on a fourth floor tenement building in New York City’s Chinatown is invasively communal. Chinese immigrants live in a loft that has been divided into blocks of cubicles barely wider than a mattress. Here a very pregnant Mei struggles alone to safely give birth to her child and deal with the consequences of her husband's demands.
