He was a stern father who treated his child with rigid traditional Eastern domestic disciplines and required that his son show reverence for and filial obedience to the family authority. Nevertheless, under the influence of Western culture, he was sometimes irresolute about his way of parenting. After his son ran away from home, he lived by himself and soon died of an illness. At the last moment of his life in the face of death, he eventually understood his son.

Synopsis: 
A short piece that celebrates all the women you won’t see on TV: the women who won't win the cup or be the best in the world, but who still enjoy being physically active in their own way.
Submission Instructions: 

Please email submissions to bronwyn@goldsteinproductions.ca

Additional Comments: 

Why? Because young girls who are physically active are more likely to succeed in their education and future careers. And because representation is important. People are more likely to follow in the footsteps of someone who looks like them on TV, Film or a commercial. This piece showcases women of different ages, races and body types.

Script:
These are the women you won't see on TV.
The ones who won't win the cup. Or be the best in the world.
The ones who's athletic ability is based on the shape of their body.
The ones who were told that they don't play a "real sport".
Who aren't "capable".
Who love to run but don't have a "runners body".
Who sometimes just don't feel like it.
These are the women who needed to prove that they are strong.
To their teams. To their friends. And to themselves.
And who, despite the moments when the world was against them.
Kept playing. Kept trying. Kept going.
These are the women shaped by their passions.
These are the women you won't see on TV.
