NORTH AMERICAN PREMIERE

Buried deep under the soil of Chinese family tradition, one family’s secrets gradually come to the surface when a pregnant daughter returns home to visit her parents. The secret no one wants to admit was long ago exposed when the mother caught her husband with a young man. Refusing to divorce, she looked to an ominous cult for redemption and guidance, creating bitterness, hatred and conflict in the mother-daughter relationship. A Dog Braking at the Moon is a tale of suppressed desire, the social importance of marriage, and the frostiness that exists between the walls of a wealthy Chinese family home.
