This study examines the intrinsic meaning of the text through the narrative analysis of the film Hi, Mom. The film constitutes a narrative moving from the present to the past as the daughter goes back to her mother's youth through a time slip. In other words, it depicts the process of the same character experiencing new events in different time and space. This study explores the superficial or deep causes of these events. To this end, the ‘narrative of desire’ is analyzed focusing on Gremas’s Actantial Model and Semiotic Square. Also, through the problem of reproduction of character identity, the meaning of the text is constructed through the psychological problem of the character. In addition, this film seems to have played a role in conveying the feeling of longing for parents and hometown in a situation where many Chinese were unable to return home during the Spring Festival due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic. The universal social and cultural meaning of China and the way Chinese cultural psychology forms sympathy with this film are also discussed.
