Synopsis

A girl of about ten carries a little suitcase when arriving at an intercity bus terminal. She was abandoned by her mother a week ago. Not knowing what to do and why her mother left her, she decides to find a man who might be her father and who she has never met before. 

Director's Note

Directed Wild Flowers about teenage runaway struggling for survival, and then made Steel Flower about a girl in her twenties trying to be independent. After I talked about survival and independence, I would like to complete the end of my film as consolation. Before I started my first film, I happened to meet a girl throwing out empty glass bottles with vacant eyes on the street. She is the character in my film; she was also me; she was everyone as well. Ash Flower is my last greetings to the girl whose name and age I did not even know.
