A heartwarming video has gone viral on Chinese social media starring a man that has put all other filial sons to shame.
The man, in his fifties, is shown in the Pear Video clip driving a cart with his elderly mother resting in the back. Later, he goes to tend to her and feed her, all while wearing a flowery blue-and-white cheongsam.
He says that he’s been dressing like this for the last two decades, ever since his sister died. After his sister’s death, his mother began to break down mentally. To make her feel better, he started dressing as a woman, making her think that her daughter had returned.
After seeing how happy he made his mom, he knew that he could not go back to dressing like a man. Now, he says he doesn’t even have any men’s clothing. To make money, he plays the flute on the street. He’s never been married, so his life revolves around his mother. He says that he doesn’t care what anyone else thinks about the way that he dresses.
