YesAsia Editorial Description

The Hokkien word Kiasu translates to "fear of losing." It refers to a very widespread social practice in Asia of maintaining "face," and for parents, this manifests itself in comparing their own children to those of others. It sometimes happens that due to a parent's kiasu attitude, a child's dreams get lost in the dust. This is the central theme of the 2014 Taiwanese comedy Kiasu.

As per his mother's wish, 30-year-old De Ming (Shiou Jieh Kai, Silent Code) works as a dentist. What his mother doesn't know, though, is that he hates his job and has a long-buried dream of becoming a stage actor. After attending a workshop and meeting aspiring actress Delia (singer-actress Mini Tsai) his passion for acting is reignited. He decides to give up his job as a dentist to pursue a career in acting, but his relationship with his mother is strained to its breaking point when she finds out.
