“His name is, Chih-Wei Peng”

Chi-wei Peng is a single father raising two daughters as a "man'' in Taiwan, where the patriarchal system remains strong. Leaving her daughters at her parents' home, he travels all over Taiwan working day and night, living a life of migrant labor on the edge of his physical and mental health.The only thing he looks forward to is seeing his daughters several times a month. “Protect your family as a man” In today's world, where diverse lifestyles are encouraged, these words sound extremely outdated. But who can deny his way of life? “His name is, Chih-Wei Peng”.
