This short fictional story is based on a Taiwanese family with a father who immigrated to the Island after the war from Shanghai.  It brings to life the dynamics within a Taiwan family after the second world war and how a good hearted man and a strong cultured woman of different cultures raise their children.

This short story dispels the notion that Chinese brought only the White Fear and opportunism when they arrived in Taiwan.  The overwhelming majority of Taiwanese reject Chinese communism and will protect their independence and human rights.  Thanks to a generation of one parent or the other like this Shanghai father  a generation of Taiwanese have learned the values of an open and free society through education , tolerance and learning what is ethics.
