HeartString / Children


There are visible or invisible lines in life.
Those invisible lines that connect us may be called bond.

In the eyes of children, the behavior of parents will always affect their  immature heartstrings.

In the interactive story, we will easily cut off the visible lines again and again, and experience a little heartbreak again and again.

A neglected phone call, a forgotten promise, a lonely dinner, an empty room, a heart withered in waiting - these small heartbreaks gradually add up the damage, and eventually cause the whole heart broken.

Beauty is always fragile.

Let‘s take care of children from the heart.
