The Piano in a Factory / Zhang Meng

Chen’s estranged wife suddenly reappears, asking for a divorce and custody of their daughter. Knowing that his daughter is desperate to have her own piano, Chen believes that if he can secure one, then she will choose to live with him. Without any other means, Chen decides to build the piano from scratch, persuading a group of unaccomplished – but loyal – friends to help him. He soon comes to realize that his efforts are in vain, and lets his daughter live a better life with her mother. But his friends decide to forge ahead with the project. Though crude in design and out of tune, the factory piano is finally finished...
