The Embroidery 绣花儿 (xiù huā ér)

During the Japanese occupation, a Chinese family who owns a small embroidery shop refuses to sell a gown to a Japanese woman. Undeterred, the woman returns later with a gift for the shop owners' daughter. This time, instead of a gown, she is looking for a special apron for her pregnant belly. The shop owners oblige this time and sell her the apron. 

Years later, the shop-owner's family is listening to the radio and hears that there has been a Chinese victory and they have vanquished the Japanese enemy. When they open their front door, they find a baby wrapped in the embroidered apron they sold to the Japanese woman. They decide to raise the baby girl as their own. 

The family moves to a new city and the shop owner gets a new job in a factory. Nevertheless, years later, the family receives a piece of mail from Japan requesting that the child be reunited with her biological family.
