Our Review:

Hejiahui is not a rare one. It’s the most common character of all times. She is in fact one amongst us and she is everywhere around the World. A women, talented, full of life & energy, eager to be a perfectionist and an achiever. While juggling so many roles, she is all times pressurized to make decisions based not on what’s best for her but for her family. But in that one thing Hejiahui stands out. She was willing to give up her achievement, dream, passion, ambition and her career not for others but for her own consciousness. Realization begins to dawn within her because she was able to connect so well with the character she was performing like a true artist. Her decision to keep her unborn baby based on the role she is performing on stage was a sacrifice she made for herself and that brings immense happiness.
