In the film, Wen Shan, an ordinary screenwriter who fell behind, started to write eulogy for a living by accident. In the encounter with ordinary people of all colors, Wen Shan comforted others and gained warmth, and finally found his own direction in life. The film is a true portrayal of director Jiayin Liu’s search for answers in constantly balancing the relationship between the individual and the world for more than ten years. "I also often go to Babaoshan and the zoo, and many of them are my imagination of the possible life. I imagined what I could do in Babaoshan and what I needed, from which I conjured up this role."

In the movie, Hugh plays an introverted observer who "smiles once in a while means he is happy, but looks less happy means everything is normal". When Hugh talked about his initial creation of this role, he was very concerned about whether he could find someone to refer to in real life. This role did not conform to his previous experience in creating characters. "When I have no specific object to refer to, I will be insecure and afraid that I can’t really get close to this person."

Finally, in this somewhat healing story, Hugh found his own experience in recent years. After his mother died in 2019, "I have never had the courage to face up to this matter, and I am lucky to meet Wen Shan. In fact, when I met this character, he really kept healing and warming me. I always switched between Wen Shan and the characters he cured. "

The third time I cooperated with Hugh, it was Leo who played the inner projection of Wen Shan in the film. For Wu Lei, who started to try the author’s film, this performance is also a brand-new challenge. Sometimes the role is not so "landing", and at the same time, it is necessary to reach a certain echo and care with Hugh’s performance. As a person who is waiting to be created in the movie, Leo said that Xiao Yin is waiting for a better way out. "It’s like myself, and like many young people, they are eager for a better future."

In Hugh’s view, the role of Wen Shan is to director Jiayin Liu, just as Xiao Yin played by Leo is to Wen Shan. Jiayin Liu, who projected a lot of his own experiences and emotions, admitted that when he first created the script, Wen Shan’s face was always vague until the moment he turned on the phone. "The reaction from quantitative change to qualitative change happened. He seemed to steal Wen Shan from me, and I can see Wen Shan’s face from now on."
