He loves his homeland and all it has to offer, but as a lower class man, he is unable to provide the means to raise his child and to provide him with the best future possible. But at the end of the day, he has good intentions in his heart, or at least what he deems to be good. ** ROLE CALLS FOR AN ACTOR THAT IS FLUENT IN CANTONESE, NO EXCEPTIONS AS ROLE WILL BE DONE IN CANTONESE!!!***|
