Adapted from the Chinese legend of The Chalk Circle by We Happy Few
Directed by Kerry McGee
At it’s simplest, Chalk is a story of motherhood. A wise judge draws a chalk circle on the ground to determine the true mother of a contested child.
However, it’s also a story about revolution and rebellion. It’s about the choices we are forced to make for ourselves, for our families and for the causes we believe in. It’s about the working class and the wealthy, justice and family, duty and survival.
In an ever-changing world where nothing is black and white, how can we judge what’s right?
