Old Lady Waits For Her Son Alone For Years, And The Ending Will Move You To Tears

How long haven’t you made time for your parents? We easily give priority to our personal pursuits, because we assume we never lack the chance to show our care for our parents in the future. Some of us may even think that we can compensate them for our absence with material possessions. But is it really the case? This short video “Changing Batteries” serves as a great reminder that if we miss the precious time with our parents, we won’t have the second chance.

The story begins with an old lady who lives alone receiving a large gift from her son living far away. The old lady feels disappointed when she reads the note telling that her son, John cannot come back to visit her this year. After unwrapping the gift, she finds that there’s a child-like robot inside!

The woman then lives with the robot, and they take care of each other like mother and son. Whenever the little robot is out of battery, the woman helps him change the battery to keep him alive. As time goes by, the old lady’s health condition turns poorer and poorer. The robot wants to save his “mother” by putting a new battery into her pocket but it’s futile–he cannot save her like how she saves him. The old lady finally leaves the world, only with the little robot beside her…

Please remember that you can only spend limited time with your parents. Cherish every second with them and don’t leave any regrets in your life!
