The Wright Stuff Festival 2021 – Lion

Written by Jedidiah Huang


“Sometimes you have to be a lion, to be the lamb you really are.” – Yvonne Reed

Yi Kai, a reformed party playboy jock has waited his entire life for this moment – a chance at adopting a son. After countless rejections, he finally sees the light of day when an orphanage is willing to meet him for an interview. 


On the day of the interview, Yi Kai steps in all dressed to impress. But at one look, Jack, the orphanage’s case manager, is instantly transported back to his teenage years where Yi Kai used to torment him relentlessly in school. A deep scar had been left to fester over the years in Jack’s heart, and unsurprisingly, the interview quickly ended with a flat-out rejection.

Puzzled but not defeated, Yi Kai refuses to give up the fight for his right to raise a child. Now, both men are forced to confront their bitter past for the sake of a child’s future.
