Synopsis
The New Oriental School in Beijing was the scene of a brutal rape and murder case in 2016. The perpetrator was subsequently apprehended and sentenced to life in prison, but has since appealed his sentence. The victim's mother travelled all the way to Beijing in search of justice, only to be turned away from the school by officials, who also claimed that her daughter's belongings at the school had long been lost.

Director's Note
The experience of a victim's mother is a microcosmic reflection of various problems in the legal system and education system of contemporary China. The documentary Heaven Can Wait tries to approach the structure of the realistic feature film, maintaining the perspective of the protagonist, and keeping the narrative coherent. We specially cut out the hard and cruel pieces, and emphasizes Li Jie's emotional change and inner expression. By doing this, we hope that the film can give the audience warmth in a depressing situation, and we also wish Aunt Li Jie a better life.
