The real story behind the tearjerker 'Three Minutes'
Peter Chan's short film, Three Minutes, has been a hit in China. The story is about a mom who works as a train conductor on one of China's longest railway routes, and she needs to work through the Spring Festival. Her son can only see her for three minutes when the train stops at her hometown. During the Spring Festival, which is all about family reunions, their three minutes reunion tugged on many heartstrings, and now the basis for the film has been revealed. Her name is Liu Zhong and she is a conductor on the Z229 train from Shenzhen to Urumqi, and her son is named Chen Hongjin. Early in January 2017, there was a media report about their stories when Liu Zhong's train stopped at Hengyang, for four minutes, and she got to see her beloved son, who is nicknamed Tintin. In the film, Tintin recites his time tables to his mother, but in real life, he showed her a handwritten note:"Mom I love you." The story of Liu Zhong happens everyday on China's transport routes, especially during the Spring Festival rush. Thousands of people work on holidays to make sure other families can have a wonderful reunion. They bury their love for their family, and what passengers see on their faces are not tears but warm smiles.

FFFFF @ rollance : Yeah, you are right. It is a real story happened in our daily life. For example, a couple may have  no time to spend a lot of time together because of their work.
