SMH has a report on 21 y.o. Chinese star pianoist and how his parents sacrified to bring their goal to fruitation. I actually reckon it is a sad story, especially the part where the mum has to live separately from her husband and son for 9 years. I think only Chinese would sacrifice their lives this way to achive praises and achievements that are not worthwhile. Much prefer the movie Together (和你在一起) where at the end young talented violinist forsaked his career into stardom for the relationship with his adopting father.
