吴先生在上海老城区的一个“小市民”家庭中长大。他是一个典型的上海老公,性格不软不硬,时而不拘一格,时而一毛不拔。作为一名高中英语老师,吴先生似乎对西方文化有些许了解。虽然他的认识并不深,但他鼓励他儿子去美国求学。儿子去世后,他愧疚万分。由于他的悔恨,儿子洒遍骨灰的遗愿没有得以实现。时过半载,他和妻子返回美国,与儿子的器官接受者见面。通过这次会面,吴先生希望终于能和过去和解。 Mr. Wu grew up in a "petty citizen" family in old town Shanghai. He is a classic Shanghainese husband, not terribly firm, not terribly gentle—an introvert and an extrovert. As a high school English teacher, Mr. Wu seems to know fragments of western culture, but only vague ideas that he then further extrapolates. He encouraged his son to go to college in the U.S for a brighter future. After the death of his son, he blamed himself for sending his son away. Because of his guilt to his son, Mr. Wu felt reluctant to scatter his son's ashes, even though his son requested it. Five years have passed since then. He returns the U.S with his wife to meet the organ recipient of his son, which he felt could help him reconcile with the past and move on.
